  • Most of these files are ".ps.gz", i.e. postscript files (.ps) compressed with gzip (.gz).
  • Since Mon 15/7/02, I have tried to provide PDF alternatives to all postscript files.
  • Since Sun 20/10/02, DJVU alternatives are also provided.
  • If you don't have gunzip on your machine, you can find gunzip executables for various systems here; the msdos executable is also here. Some users report that gsview32 is useful for viewing the ps.gz files.
    Further links about gzip and gunzip: gzip.org, gzip.html.
    Some users of windows machines find that if they download a ps.gz file by http then it does not unzip and display, but if they download it by ftp, it works fine. To convert an http URL to an ftp URL, please use the following pair as an example:
