(Sorry, this is complicated -- because I'm confused!) Installing Mathematica 4.0 (Windows 98 version) installs the DumpSave-format package C:\Mathematica4.0\SystemFiles\Kernel\SystemResources\Windows\Convert\ConvertInit.mx and the LaTeX 2.09 style file C:\Mathematica4.0\SystemFiles\IncludeFiles\TeX\notebook.sty (where "Mathematica4.0" is my name for the top Mathematica directory). A .tex file generated from a whole notebook includes the comment: %%Implementation-specific instructions for installing TeX-related files %% can be found at this URL. %% %% http://www.wolfram.com/support/FrontEnds/Export/TeX That URL, in turn, has a link to a page specifically for 4.0 that includes the link: http://www.wolfram.com/suppport/FrontEnds/Export/HTML/Convert.zip The file Convert.zip includes among others the following files, all dated 5/20/99:, ConvertCommon.m ConvertInit.m HTMLConvert.m TeXConvert.m notebook.sty notebook2e.sty along with a README.txt file telling where to install these. QUESTIONS: 1. Is the functionality of these four .m files subsumed by ConvertInit.mx? 2. If so, is the content of these four .m files more recent than ConvertInit.mx (whose date is 4/21/99) more recent than that of ConvertInit.mx? 3. What is the relationship of notebook.sty in that .zip file with notebook.sty that is installed as part of installing Mathematica 4.0? (Note that the version numbers and dates of these two files are inconsistent--the one installed says "v.30 December 20, 1998" whereas the one from the .zip file says "notebook.sty,v 1.5 1999/05/05"!) 4. How come installing Mathematica 4.0 installs notebook.sty (which seems to be exclusively for LaTeX 2.09 or else Plain TeX) yet does not install notebook2e.sty (which is for the now-standard version of LaTeX, namely, LaTeX2e)? -- Murray Eisenberg murray at math.umass.edu Mathematics & Statistics Dept. phone 413 549-1020 (H) Univ. of Massachusetts 413 545-2859 (W) Amherst, MA 01003-4515
