For those of you who are looking for a way to find TeX packages, check 
out <http://tcobrowser.sourceforge.net/>.

It is a front-end for the TeX Catalogue Online, providing a similar 
interface to that of BibDesk (although it was written from scratch).  
You can search the entries in the catalogue, and also view an entry's 
web location directly from the program.  Where local documentation is 
found for a package, it is also indicated in the program's viewer; 
double-clicking the file icons will open up the doc file in the 
appropriate program.  Remote documentation on CTAN will be opened by 
the default URL handler.

Please send bug reports directly to me, not to this list, or post them 
on the SourceForge project page at 
<http://sourceforge.net/projects/tcobrowser/>.  I set up a mailing list 
on SourceForge that you can access from the project page, if anyone's 

Hopefully this will make it easier for people to find those random 
packages on CTAN and install them, as well as make local documentation 
more accessible.  I'm open to feature requests and ideas, but 
preferably in the form of patches :).
