The combination of dtx and ins is a standard way of distributing  
latex packages.

Just run tex on the ins ('install') file. It will process the dtx  
file to produce the sty file.
Then run the dtx file through (pdf)latex, and you'll get the  
documentation of the
package. You can then move the produced files to the correct locations.
