How do I print my LaTeX document?

The first thing you need to do to format your file is to process your LaTeX file and create a device-indepedent (dvi) file. To do this, type:

	latex  filename

To view the file without printing it:

	xdvi  filename.dvi

The LaTeX software provided includes a "dvi to PS" converter. To run it,

	dvips -Pprinter file.dvi 

This will convert the file and print it on the specified printer.
