"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 progamsnecessary to display and print Postscript files (they'll even displayand print compressed PostScript files!). These programs alsodisplay 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 willneed the following pieces of software (all available freely over theinternet):

  • Make, a project management utility originally intended asa programming tool, but useful for managing just about any kind ofcomputer project composed of many files. If you cannot obtain acopy of Make for your computer system, you can get by with a littleskill and a few batch files (also known as shell scripts). The master"Makefile" in this directory is readable with a text editor or wordprocessor, and contains all the instructions carried out by the otherutilities.
  • Sed (stands for Stream EDitor), a common UNIX utility forperforming search-and-replace commands on text files. Required toconvert SubML source code into HTML, TeX, LaTeX, and other formats. Thisis all you need for generating HTML output!
  • LaTeX2e, a document formatting system designed as anextension to TeX, Donald Knuth's outstanding text processing system.You can also get by with just plain TeX, but your printed output won'tlook quite as nice and it will lack table-of-contents and index entries.

If you opt for the smaller of the two files (DIGItiny.tar.gz), you'llalso need a set of graphic manipulation utilities released as a packagecalled ImageMagick. Specifically, the utility you'll need isnamed Mogrify. The larger of the two source archive filescontains all graphic images in two formats, Encapsulated PostScript(*.eps) and JPEG (*.jpg). This makes for a large file. The smallersource archive file only contains Encapsulated PostScript for schematicdiagrams and JPEG images for photographs. This makes for a much smallerfile, but it requires that you do some image conversion on your end. Ifyou have access to other image manipulation software capable ofconverting hundreds of files with a batch command, you won't have touse ImageMagick.
