The TeX Directory Structure (TDS) specifies a convention for organizing the files of TeX-related packages in a directory tree. The root of this tree, which is called the TEXMF root directory, usually contains one ore more of the following top-level directories:

  • bibtex
  • doc
  • fonts
  • scripts
  • tex

For example, the LaTeX input files of package foo are expected to be found in tex/latex/foo/.
