Post Script Documents: "How do I view and/or print PostScript documents," you ask? Easy! Just download some free software at: www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost. There you'll find GSview and Ghostscript, two progams necessary to display and print Postscript files (they'll even display and print compressed PostScript files!). These programs also display and format Adobe PDF files as a bonus. Versions for Windows, OS/2, and Linux available. To "compile" these source files into a viewable format, you will need the following pieces of software (all available freely over the internet): Make, a project management utility originally intended as a programming tool, but useful for managing just about any kind of computer project composed of many files. If you cannot obtain a copy of Make for your computer system, you can get by with a little skill and a few batch files (also known as shell scripts). The master "Makefile" in this directory is readable with a text editor or word processor, and contains all the instructions carried out by the other utilities. SED (stands for Stream EDitor), a common UNIX utility for performing search-and-replace commands on text files. Required to convert SubML source code into HTML, TeX, LaTeX, and other formats. This is all you need for generating HTML output! LaTeX2e, a document formatting system designed as an extension to TeX, Donald Knuth's outstanding text processing system. You can also get by with just plain TeX, but your printed output won't look quite as nice and it will lack table-of-contents and index entries.
