LQMATRIX is an editor for user-made characters known as "soft fonts" for
Epson LQ 24-pin dot matrix printers and compatibles.  It comes with the 
editor, a downloader, LQ.EXE, and over 40 complete fonts including a    
wide variety of common fonts, serif, script, etc., as well as old       
English, Gothic, two Cyrillic fonts, and classical Greek.               
LQMATRIX and fonts are designed to use the text mode for printing       
user-made fonts.  In contrast to graphics, this mode is as fast as using
the default letters and thus is useful for printing long texts. In the  
text mode, the printers accept a `soft' font into memory and use it     
rather than the built-in `hard' font. In fact, when so instructed, it   
can switch back and forth between the two.  Thus, if you have written a 
paper in English but wish to cite examples in the Greek alphabet, you   
can `download' (send to the printer) the Greek font (greek.lqn on this  
package) and use it when necessary.                                     
For those who wish to use the various ready-made fonts for different    
purposes (or just for variety), all you need is the LQ.EXE program.     
With it, any of the premade fonts can be downloaded to the printer.  For
those users who wish to create their own fonts, modify those already    
supplied, or create a small number of special characters for a specific 
task, LQMATRIX.EXE provides just the environment you need.  It's an     
easy-to-use matrix program with many features that permit the user to   
create characters, store them in a file, and download them to the Epson 
LQ family of 24-dot matrix printers.  With it, you can design Draft, NLQ
(10 cpi), and proportional characters.

This batch file will 'unpack' all of the fonts that go with LQMATRIX, 
the best font designer available for 24 pin dot matrix printers. The
self-extracting files can be run separately. To direct them to a different
drive use the parameter: /eX:, where X is the desired drive.

If you are unpacking onto 5 inch floppies you will need two of them.
The first will receive the fonts in LQFONT.EXE and a copy of
LQ.EXE, the downloader. The second will receive the remaining fonts and
another copy of LQ.EXE.  If unpacking to a hard disk a \LQMATRIX
directory will be created.
