I'd like to read the scsh-manual on my ASCII terminal. For some reason, I
cannot "latex" the source in the scsh-manual directory -- there
seems to either be some files missing or the files must be latex'ed in a
Yep, it uses a lot of special support style files. Maybe we'll include them
in the next release. The point was more to have the LaTeX text available
than to really support re-LaTeXing the thing.
Is there any way to do this or am I up sh*t creek?
There's just no way to get LaTeX to generate reasonable ASCII text.
I originally tried to write the manual in Texinfo, but it is such a horrible
system I gave up.
We do try to maintain a cheat-sheet synopsis of the procedures in ASCII
form. You might also post to the Scheme netnews groups asking if any kind
soul has considered porting the manual to HTML or info format. Or you
could do it yourself, and be a hero.
If anyone wants to do this, I'll leak them an advance copy of the 0.4 manual.
