Re: clisp manuals
For win32 TeX are you refering to the MikTeX distribution from
Christian Schenk? If so, what's been wrong with it? If not, you
should definitely check CTAN for it, query Yahoo, or ask me to dig up
a URL. I've gotten very good results with it at work on a variety of
NT and WIn95 stations.
