Summary description: defines macros using § made active to typeset greek 
  letters in math mode
License type: lppl

Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
- - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
This package provides a means of typing "easily" greek letters
with the least possible effort ;) It takes care only of the
letters which have a macro name as \alpha or \Omega.

Typing just §a will give the equivalent of \ensuremath{\alpha}.

A dtx and a ins file are provided with two examples and README files. 
The dtx has been translated from French into English. A bash file is 
provided, just in case, to generate the sty and pdf document file.
