This will work with that single document only. It is better to put it
to a directory below texmf-local/tex/xelatex and then run mktexlsr. In
my computer I put it to this directory:

$ kpsewhich ucharclasses.sty

Similarly, I put ucharclasses.pdf to
$ kpsewhich ucharclasses.sty

Thus "texdoc ucharclasses" shows the manual without need of doing anything else.

Simple rule for manual installation of packages: look how the files
are organized in texmf-dist and create an analogous directory
structure in texmf-local.
