 Tips on documentation,
programming, and etc.
 How do I convert
files between Postscript (*.ps) and PDF (*.pdf) formats? (www)
 PDF to
PS conversion and converting A4 page size to U.S. Letter:
 acroread
toPostScript file.pdf (command line convert pdf
to ps)
 acroread
toPostScript size letter file.pdf (command line
convert pdf to ps and FORCE the output paper size to letter)
 psresize
pletter origpsfile.ps newpsfile.ps (forces output
to letter sized)
 PS to PDF:
 /usr/local/bin/convert
myfile.ps myfile.pdf
 /usr/local/bin/convert
 /usr/local/bin/distill
myfile.ps
 /usr/local/bin/distill
 How do I "compress"
the size of LaTeX file without struggling figure layout, abridging
the content?
 Instead
of just \begin{document},
 Try this:
 \newcommand{\shrinka}{\def\baselinestretch{0.96}\large\normalsize}
 \begin{document}
 \shrinka
