You should now have directories:
src The C++ source files, plus two PostScript source files.
page Contains the PostScript Page Definitions
doc Contains documentation and example .tex files
man Contains the LameTeX man page
You need to have a copy of latex and dvips from Radical Eye Software.
If you want to format text in ASCII, you need to have a copy of Perl.
You'll need to compile the code in the src directory.
To do this, you will need to edit the Makefile. Choose the appropriate
name for your CC executable. Choose the appropriate name for your source
directory, page directory, and executable directory.
Also, if your latex or dvips is a funny version, you will have to
change the variables LATEX and DVIPS. Don't make this change unless
you try lametex and it gives you an error while trying to run latex or
Now go into the src directory and type "make".
Now type cd ../doc
Move the lametex_doc.ps to a temporary file with
mv lametex_doc.ps lametex_doc.ps.works
Now try formatting the documentation in lametex_doc.tex.
You can type "../src/lametex lametex_doc.tex", and LameTeX
will process the file for you. Alternately, you can use normal LaTeX
to format the file with "latex lametex_doc.tex".
The document will tell you everything you need to know to run LameTeX.

lametex – A PostScript translator for a subset of LaTeX
Lamε-TeX is a direct PostScript generator for a (very limited)
subset of LaTeX. One of its original design goals, the inclusion
of PostScript commands directly in a LaTeX document, has been
superseded by PSTricks. However,
one of the side effects of a special-purpose translator for LaTeX
is the ability of that translator to produce different kinds of
output, including plain ASCII.
The system only understands a subset of La
X, and is not set up
to use Type 1 fonts; however, it is capable of doing some
