You could also use TeX and dvipdfm for the work, or anything that creates Postscript, which can then be fed through Ghostscript to create PDF. > Most of the others already are available as PDF's on the site Nick mentioned > last time: > http://highgate.comm.sfu.ca/~rcini/classiccmp/my_docs.htm I think that it is good to have the scanned bitmaps in a more "standard" format than PDF. The Adobe Acrobat reader is not available for all platforms, and neither do open source viewers, such as xpdf. If I remember correctly, William Levak has converted many of the PDF documents on that site to straight bitmaps. I really appreciate that, since I think that image viewer programs offer more flexibility than PDF viewers. With high-resolution bitmaps, such as the 6545 documents, it's very handy to use xv to zoom in to an area of interest by just selecting the area with the mouse and then typing 'c' and 'n'. And I think xv does antialiasing better than Acrobat Reader. (Select 24-bit mode and "smooth" view.) Marko - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
