Herein lies information to help you successfully use my webpages. Perhaps you have a suggestion on how I could improve these pages?
There is an Online viewer for PDF, PostScript and Word. [The URL changed and I have not verified to new URL's functionality.] Postscript files often have a .ps extension. This site does automatic GZIP [the .gz extension] decompression.
I do not know of an online reader of .dvi [which stands for DeVice Independent -the output from the TeX typesetting language.] files; if you find one, please let me know.
GSview. Its default magnification is huge. The math symbols are readable, although grainy -but it prints perfectly.
PostScript Printeris checked, then click Ok, and the dialog evaporates.
copier cardinto the maw of a card-reader, next to a monitor. The monitor asks me to type the username that I just used. It then displays all print-jobs under that username. I click on the job that I wish, and the printer prints it immediately. The ps prints flawlessly.
`GSview' is apparently a free ps-viewing program for Windows. You might want to install it on your home system, if you run Windows. For UNIX, use `ghostview'.
 To reduce the image size and make more text appear in the window, click on the lefthand button showing a circle with a minus-sign in it.
 I used the default 300x300 resolution. I used the default printer (called Inkjet).
 The library charged 10cents per page. On my webpage, however, the number of ps pages that you would want to print during the entire semester will probably set you back no more than 3 bucks; negligible. And the convenience of Marston Science Library is hard to beat.
I presume that the above discussion also applies to the computers at Library West.
