Users who want to write greek documents of any type, but also need to write a lot of english (or generally, use latin alphabet) and/or maths.
This FreeBSD port allows you to write greek documents in LaTeX, with both greektext and latintext, without having to switch between the two with the usual commands greektext, latintext (or any other): you just write greek or latin text.
The port installs postcript fonts created by Angelos Haritsis (Arial, Times, Courier) and uses hyphenation patterns for greek by Regina Mourtou (the semantics) and Stefanos Maganaris (pattern generatation). The patterns were adapted to the Windows ASCII position by G. Moustakides.
The installation procedure is as for any FreeBSD port/package. In summary:
Refer to the apropriate section of FreeBSD Handbook for details.
To use it, include the line:
in the preamble of your .tex (see ag-test.tex) like:

Auto-greek should work in windows (MiKTeX or Tex Live) but there is no "official" installer for that. There is a contributed installer from Emmanuel Koukaras that is known to work for at least some Windows + MiKTeX combos. You can get it from google code or here:
