Yes, XPDF can. Althought the document is incomplete, as tex ran out of memory.

I should be able to up the limits of the main memory, but it seems to ignore me:
x31% kpsewhere texmf.cnf

x31% grep main_memory /usr/local/share/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf
% main_memory.hugetex = 20000000
% main_memory is relevant only to initex, extra_mem_* only to non-ini.
% Thus, have to redump the .fmt file after changing main_memory; to add
main_memory = 6000000 % words of inimemory available; also applies to inimf&mp

still complaining about 3000000...

Confused (and frustrated...). This assignment is due in 2 days :(


Best Regards
