Subject:Online Docs on SCO UNIX From:Jonathan Leer <jleer -at- LTC -dot- MV -dot- COM> Date:Tue, 31 Dec 1996 16:14:01 -0400
Rumor has it that SCO UNIX does not support PDF files.
A client of mine has Framemaker-based documentation and wanted to put the manuals up on SCO UNIX machines as PDF files. Apparently Adobe Acrobat is not supported on SCO UNIX. Subsequently, the client is looking for an alternative to PDF files for providing online docs. Are there any tools for converting the Framemaker documents to troff man pages?
Or are there other products with reasonavbly priced (license) viewers?
Also, have you ever heard of a product called "FMA" that does Framemaker conversion?
