Download InstructionsFiles are in PostScript and Portable Document Format (PDF) formats, and documents in PostScript have been compressed with the gzip utility. You can retrieve these files by clicking on the appropriate link.
If your browser is configured to automatically expand files compressed with gzip and launch a PostScript or PDF viewer, then simply click on the desired link. If you do this and your browser fills up with garbage, then your browser is not configured properly, and you need to download the files directly to your local directory.
When this happens, click the Back button to get back to the main publications page. To download a file using Netscape, simply hold down the shift key and click on the link of the paper you want. You should see a file dialog box that will let you save the file to your local disk. After you have retrieved the file, depending on how your browser is configured, you may need to expand the file manually using gunzip, which is included in the gzip utilities. The UNIX file command can help you determine the file type (i.e., whether it's a PostScript document, a PDF document, or compressed data).
For viewing PDF files, you can download the Adobe Acrobat Reader for your platform.
For viewing PostScript files, if you're using UNIX, once you've expanded the file, you can view it using Ghostview. To print the file, simply use the lpr command to send the file to a PostScript printer.
