The ctan entry has no documentation and texdoc nth does not find an entry.

Any idea where to find documentation for the package options?

texdoc nth works fine for me on TL2012 (on linux) – cmhughes Sep 28 '12 at 1:27
texdoc nth on TL2012 (mac) opens up a README file for the turnthepage package. Strange. texdoc nth.sty works just fine. – Mike Sep 28 '12 at 3:32
Maybe it's a conspiration aimed at hiding this package. Now that you found it, don't use it. There are many good reasons not to use a "superscript th" for ordinal numbers. – egreg Sep 28 '12 at 6:31
@egreg What are those reasons? Why should I not use superscript th for ordinals? – gerrit Nov 15 '12 at 11:09

You find the documentation inside the package file nth.sty right at the beginning.

Also texdoc can be used, but the file name extension has to be given:

texdoc nth.sty
