TeX DVI ---> PostScript, and a postscript

TeX DVI ---> PostScript, and a postscript

Post by Dylan Yoll » Fri, 02 Nov 1990 11:51:00



Hello. If you are not intersted in my question, but are interested
in the shareware Mac, read on anyway, because I talk about the latter
too.

Well, I've created my TeX .dvi file, but I've no idea how to turn it
into PostScript on my ST. Is a "dvi2ps" program available for the ST somewhere?
I've no facility whatsoever with C compilers, so sources aren't much use.
Also, I've downloaded everything in sight off the servers and can't find
a dvi to ps.  Any ideas anyone?

While I'm here, I should make a short postscript to a previous article I
posted about why I thought a shareware Mac emulator should not be pursued.
In it, I said that such a thing would hurt Dave Small, and it is not in any
ST user's interest to hurt Dave Small. Some people have interpreted this
as my saying that we don't have the "right" to make a shareware Mac emulator,
or that it would be "unethical." I'm not saying anything of the kind. I'M
SIMPLY SAYING THAT IT IS IN *OUR* *INTERESTS* NOT TO DEVELOP SUCH AN EMULATOR,
BECAUSE IT IS IN *OUR* *INTERESTS* NOT TO HURT DAVID SMALL'S BUSINESS. IT
IS, IN EFFECT, SELF-SERVING NOT TO DEVELOP THIS EMULATOR (I claim). I am not
rejecting capitalism, competition, etc. as someone implied (well, maybe I'm
saying competition wouldn't be fruitful in this case; it's not like Dave Small
could do any better than he's doing, so how will a competitor help?)

For those who say that "I'll save a lot of money [because I
won't have to buy Spectre]" please see my and
other people's postings on the subject...I think there are deeper issues
than money to be saved, and I don't even think there is much money to
be saved anyway.

Is anyone actually working on this Mac thing, and if they are would they care
to comment?

Dylan

 
 
 

1. Tex.DVI to PostScript

Nelson Beebe has developed a family of DVI-Drivers. Sources are available
in a lot of Archives.
One of these Drivers the DVIALW converts DVI to the PostScript dialect
of the Apple LaserWriter.

As far as I know there exists a DVIALW version for ATARI ST with
 TOOLS GmbH in Bonn FRG. Address:

 TOOLS , Kessenicher Str. 108, D-5300 Bonn, FRG,

 phone: /+49/228/230088  - no e-mail address know.
