|These tutorials (courtesy M. Brydon) are in
Adobe Acrobat PDF
format. You can download them individually or as a set.
To view the files, you need the Acrobat Reader, which
Adobe provides at no charge
Two hints on using the Acrobat Reader:
- Version 3.0 provides a plug-in that works with most WWW
browsers (e.g., Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet
Explorer) and allows the PDF document to be shown within
the browser window. This is a convenient way to view one
tutorial. However, the links between the tutorials and
the table of contents do work from within the browser.
- You can download a version of the Acrobat Reader that
includes the Acrobat full-text search plug-in. The
self-contained version of the tutorials provides an index
that can be used by the search plug-in to search across
the entire set of tutorials. This may be a useful

files for the tutorials (you will need these files to
complete the tutorials)
Access Tutorials: Self-contained package
|These compressed files include all the
PDF tutorial files plus the index files and directories
required for full-text search. Each file is small enough
to fit on a 1.44 MB floppy disk.
- use the Save As command in your browser to save as
file (or remember the commands in the batch
file and execute them yourself),
- copy all three files into a suitable directory,
install.bat to extract the files
and index directories.
Access Tutorials: Print-only version
||Print-only version: The tutorials are
combined into one PDF file and formatted in
"2-up" mode (two pages of content per piece of
paper). The hypertext links do not work in this
document--it is intended for printing only. Note that the
images print best on a PostScript printer. Results are
less certain using non-PS printers.
These tutorials were created using Adobe FrameMaker 5 for
Windows 95/NT. Each chapter was printed as a separate PostScript
file and Adobe Acrobat Distiller was used to convert the PS files
to PDF. Acrobat Catalog was used to create the index. The screen
shots were done with Corel PhotoPaint.
