-------------- next part --------------

Some files are in PDF rather than in DVI now.

There are some files mentioned in texdoctk.dat which do not exist.

I marked them by adding " ___" to the end of the line.  After applying
the patch, you can find them like this:

  grep '___$' texdoctk.dat

  grep '___$' texdoctk.dat | awk -F\; '{printf "%-15s %s\n",$1, $3}'

epslatex        english/epslatex-en/epslatex.ps
2up             latex/seminar/2up.dvi
custom-bib      latex/custom-bib/makebst.tex
natbib          latex/natbib/natbib.dvi
natbib2         latex/natbib/natnotes.dvi
cite            latex/cite/cite.sty
overcite        latex/cite/overcite.sty
citesort        latex/ltxmisc/citesort.sty
symbols         english/symbols/symbols-letter.pdf

Some of the files are not in TL, but most of them exist as .dtx files
in the source directory and had not been extracted yet.  If someone
wants to create the missing files, it would be nice to produce PDF
rather than DVI and change the respective entries in texdoctk.dat.

Finally, if you want to remove all the lines which mention files which
are not part of TL, try 

  sed -e '/___$/d' texdoctk.dat > ...

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
