IntroductionOzTeX is a freeware Mac implementation of Donald Knuth's TeX typesetting system. TeX is mainly used in the academic community for the production of theses, papers and books, or wherever high-quality output is desired. It is particularly good at typesetting mathematics.
OzTeX includes all the popular formats and macro packages. Plain TeX, LaTeX, AMS-TeX, AMS-LaTeX and REVTeX are all installed and ready to run.
OzTeXThe OzTeX application includes TeX, INITEX, a DVI previewer, a DVI-to-PostScript translator (Tom Rokicki's dvips), and drivers for PostScript and QuickDraw printers. It also includes dvidvi, dvicopy, and Angus Duggan's PostScript utilities (psbook, psnup, psselect and pstops).
OzTeX's previewer has many features that make it easy to proofread DVI files:
OzTeX is easy to extend and customize. A Default configuration file is read when OzTeX starts up; it contains a host of parameters for setting up search paths, telling TeX how much memory to allocate for various arrays, specifying which TFMs are for PostScript fonts, etc. All your personal changes can be made in a Local config file that is loaded immediately after the Default file. The Config menu also makes it easy to load other config files at any time.
OzMFOzMF is a Mac implementation of Knuth's Metafont program for creating bitmap fonts. It also contains a number of other useful tools for font hackers: MakeTeXPK, GFtoPK, GFtoDVI, GFtype, PKtype, TFtoPL, PLtoTF, VFtoVP, VPtoVF and AFM2TFM. Each tool can process all input files in a selected folder. OzTeX can call MakeTeXPK to make missing PK fonts on demand.
OzMPOzMP is a Mac implementation of John Hobby's MetaPost program for producing PostScript pictures using a Metafont-like language.
OzTtHOzTtH is a Mac implementation of TtH, a TeX to HTML translator by Ian Hutchinson. Note that TtH is only free for non-commercial use. For commercial enquiries please visit the TtH site.
