    Great for generating a wide variety of ps and pdf files. Far easier to use than Tex or Latex. One caveat about using the windows binary for lout 3.38: The README says to extract into c:\ and then to set your path to c:\lout\bin Unfortunately, this results in c:\bin and c:\lout.lib (at least on my system -- WinXp) but no c:\lout folder. I had to first create a folder called c:\lout and then extract to there, subsequently setting my path to include c:\lout\bin as directed in the README. It worked fine then. It may be that the my unzipper was not compatible and that c:\lout folder should have been created upon extraction. Here's one way to compile a file, let's call it 'a.lout' to pdf. At the windows command prompt, type: lout -PDF a.lout > a.pdf It is hard to overstate how much more pleasant it is to typeset in lout as compared to latex. Great program. Try it.
