Subject: Converting .TeX files

        I'm having a rather annoying problem. I cruised on by and got djeoe, gcc260, gpp260, djdev, the make utility, and 
the TexInfo program (txi* So I unzip them all, and go off to read 
the documentation. I take it I'm missing a file or two. (?)

Info.exe aborts with:

info.exe: dir: file not found

That isn't the real problem, though. The real problem is that I want to 
print out the documentation. It is in .Tex format, and I really don't want 
to print out the control codes. Is there a small program out there that will 
convert .Tex files to standard ASCII, preferably putting any "#include" 
files in the correct places? (By #include I mean any files that are 
referenced, but in a seperate file, ala hypertext.)

There is no such thing as limited censorship. If you want your freedom, 
fight now. Don't wait until you've lost it.
