Printing/Reading the Manual

0 The manual is distributed with GRASP in three forms. In the GRASP directory doc you can find a Portable Document Format (PDF) file manual.pdf, a Postscript file manual.ps and a Device Independent file manual.dvi. We suggest using the PDF file. Not only is it compact, but all the sections, references, and equations are represented as clickable links. Even the WWW links (URLs) can be clicked on and will fire up your favorite Web browser. You can also easily ``zoom-in" on interesting graphs.

If you want a printed copy of the manual, there are two options. We find that the most readable form is ``2-up". You can make a postscript file of this form using the psnup utility, available as part of the public-domain package psutils. Use the commands:
psnup -2 /usr/local/GRASP/doc/manual.ps man2.ps
and then print the file that you have just created (man2.ps) on a two-sided postscript printer. You'll end up with four pages of this manual on a single sheet of paper.

If you want a copy of the manual with the color graphs in color rather than gray-scale, we've included postscript files containing the color and black-and-white pages separately. Print doc/manual_color.ps on a color printer, and doc/manual_bw.ps on a black and white printer, and start collating!
