EPS Display problem with OpenStep

  • To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net
  • Subject: [mg15719] EPS Display problem with OpenStep
  • From: "DIAMOND Mark R" <markdXYZ at XYZpsy.uwa.edu.au>

I have been having considerable difficulty creating graphics from
Mathematica which I can then incorporate successfully into LaTeX files.
The latest in a series of problems is described in the notebook below.

More generally, if anyone knows of a good source of information
regarding Mathematica graphics and LaTeX, I would be grateful to hear
about it. I have the LaTex and Mathematica books, as well as the two
LaTeX "companion" books, but I am still having considerable trouble.

                    Mathematica-Compatible Notebook

This notebook can be used on any computer system with Mathematica 3.0,
MathReader 3.0, or any compatible application. The data for the
notebook  starts with the line of stars above.

To get the notebook into a Mathematica-compatible application, do one of
the following:

* Save the data starting with the line of stars above into a file
  with a name ending in .nb, then open the file inside the application;

* Copy the data starting with the line of stars above to the
  clipboard, then use the Paste menu command inside the application.

Data for notebooks contains only printable 7-bit ASCII and can be sent
directly in email or through ftp in text mode.  Newlines can be CR, LF
or CRLF (Unix, Macintosh or MS-DOS style).

NOTE: If you modify the data for this notebook not in a Mathematica-
compatible application, you must delete the line below containing the 
word CacheID, otherwise Mathematica-compatible applications may try to 
use invalid cache data.

For more information on notebooks and Mathematica-compatible 
applications, contact Wolfram Research:

  phone: +1-217-398-0700 (U.S.)

Notebook reader applications are available free of charge from  Wolfram
Research.

Cached data follows.  If you edit this Notebook file directly, not
using Mathematica, you must remove the line containing CacheID at the
top of  the file.  The cache data will then be recreated when you save
this file  from within Mathematica.
