I will not go into details here, but I want you to get a feeling of La Te X.
At first ensure that you have installed a La Te X distribution. Open your favorite text editor – even Notepad will be good enough – and enter the following text (do not mind the colors – they are just to make it a little bit more clear for your): \documentclass \title \author \begin \maketitle \tableofcontents \section \label This is my first section! When it is finished execute the same command again.
La Te X is great in setting formulas like in example $c = \sqrt$ \section Even referencing other sections is very easy. Now you will find a file called ‘demo.pdf’ in the same directory. Adobe Reader and you will see something similar to the screenshot on the right.
In 1984 Leslie Lamport developed La Te X on top of Te X to ease its usage for normal document authors.It may be helpful to configure Windows to display file extensions if this has not been done already.To do this, select Folder Options from the Tools menu and click on the View tab.Highlight it, select the Viewer tab and change the path of the executable to C:\Program Files\Ghostgum\gsview\gsview32if necessary.PDF profile needs tweaking to work properly with Adobe Reader X. Do not change the path of the executable, but change the options to use command line arguments rather than DDE commands, exactly as shown in the screenshot.
