Lecture Notes

Files identified as "ps" are postscript.

Files identified as "ps4up" are 4up postscript files like we hand out in class. Many versions of gv don't know how to display these files, but they print out OK if you send them to the printer from gv.

Files identified as ``pdf'' are in Adobe Acrobat format. This format has the advantage over postscript of being viewable on a variety of platforms, including (most) Unix machines, PC's, and Mac's. On Unix machines, you can read these files with the Ghostview program gv. You, can view and print these files using the publicly available Adobe Acrobat Reader. You can also download free copies of the reader from Adobe Systems.

Files identified as ``ppt'' are in Microsoft Powerpoint format. These were prepared using Office 98 on a Macintosh. They should be readable from a Windows machine, as well.
