3) Move the lprep71.pro file to the same place you have the other lprep files
   (see the Psfig documentation).

5) "LaTeX," print, and read the documentation (latex mactotex, etc): 
   Note:  This documentation is a test

   something is wrong with your installation.

mac­to­tex – Con­vert "Mac­in­tosh PostScript" for use with

The pro­gram cleans out all the ir­rel­e­vant things that the MACOS ap­pli­ca­tions used to add, and re­struc­tures so that the files can be “used with ”. The doc­u­men­ta­tion talks about us­ing ps­fig, but it doesn't seem likely that this is ac­tu­ally nec­es­sary, 15 years af­ter the pro­gram was writ­ten.
