I offer suggestions for what to do in case you have difficulty getting usable output from the tar.gz versions of my book MEASURE THEORY. I have been unable to download a working TeX installation on either Windows or Mac OS, so the notes below refer only to Linux. I should welcome instructions on how to get one of the other systems to work.
gunzip mtx.20xx.tar.gz tar -xf mtx.20xx.tarwhich will create a directory mtx.20xx containing the files you need. One or more of them will be of the form volx.tex; now the Linux commands
tex volx.tex dvipdf volx.dvi volx.pdfwill create a PDF file volx.pdf which you can read onscreen or print. I find that this works on a variety of Linux installations from 2.6.13-19 to 3.13.0-79.
latex volx.texwhich will produce an error message along the lines of
! Undefined control sequence. l.479 \buffer@\fontdimen13 \tenexwhen the LaTeX compiler encounters a line which makes no sense to it.
Error: /undefined in startTexFigProvided you have not only TeX but also LaTeX installed, you may be able to fix this by
\input volwp.auxin volx.tex to
\input volwp.2016.auxand trying again with tex volx.tex . This works for me on Linux 4.4.0-18.
