> I have a large TEXTURES file which when typeset produces all
> 400+ pages including 100++ figures which comprise my Quaternion Book.
> All of these output pdf.pages were furnished to and used by Princeton
> University Press
> as camera-ready for the publication of the book (5 years ago). These
> original Textures (LaTeX)
> files were produced on my Macintosh Computers: OS 7x (or earlier), 8x,
> to 9.2.2. And all the figures
> are, of course, embedded within the Textures software either as pict
> or eps or somesuch.
> HOWEVER, I am now committed to using MacOSX (currently Panther) and
> TeXShop 1.5.3e --- and
> have become rather nimble in doing all the NEW stuff with figures,
> pictures, tables, etal. Moreover,
> I'm even now lusting to upgrade to Tiger. BUT.....
> IS THERE A WAY TO SALVAGE OR CONVERT THE INFORMATION IN MY OLD
> TEXTURES FILES or RUN
> THEM UNDER TeXShop 1.5.3e or later? HOW, first of all, to get all of
> the figures back out of TEXTURES ----
> and then to get them all properly converted (say, using
> GraphicConverter batch) is the primary issue;
> I can do ONE figure (at a time) --- but 100++ figures??? I might not
> survive it.
> ANY suggestions would be so very much welcomed. Thank you in advance,
