Dear Jean-Gabriel,

All document sources are in the source distribution 
(http://tug.org/applications/Xy-pic/soft/xy37src.tar.gz).  The User's 
Guide is in xyguide.man.  The reference manual is generated by the 
xyrefer.man file using "literal documentation" in the various *.doc source 
files.  Both use LaTeX but be warned that I was deeply into inventing my 
own macro notations at the time...especially the *.doc format might be a 
bit daunting.

You should be aware that there are already French Xy-pic guides "around" 
such as the nice http://zoonek2.free.fr/UNIX/11_xypic/ (even if it lacks 

Also, there are known issues with the Xy-pic use of special "active" 
characters and some French language packages, see for example 

Finally, the real place to ask questions about Xy-pic is The List, 
http://tug.org/mailman/listinfo/xy-pic, especially as I can find little 
time to work on TeX and Xy-pic these days.
