       eplain is an extension of plain TeX described in the book TeX for nroff
       for the Impatient.  It adds these features (among others) to plain TeX:

       o  left-justified displays

       o  double-column output

       o  tables of contents

       o  \hrule and \vrule with a different default than 0.4pt

       o  time of day

       o  verbatim file listing

       o  generalized footnotes

       o  blank and black boxes

       o  citations using BibTeX


              TeXable documentation of etex macros in texinfo format.*
              Online GNU Emacs info(1) files produced from eplain.texi.

       The  complete eplain distribution is available via anonymous ftp to the
       Internet host from the file  pub/tex/eplain.tar.Z  which
       is  linked  to  another  file containing the most recent version of the
       package.  Major TeX archive sites should also have it.
