Well I would have NEVER thought to look under 'obsolete' for the latest
version of a manual!  The warning there is pretty severe!

These files look like the place that I wandered into and wasted time
on yesterday,


which is some kind of documentation of pstricks, NOT the manual.

So where is the actual manual?

What I need is a simple csh script that compiles the *actual* manual. 
Otherwise I will not have time do this.

Does anyone use pstricks?  The main page is very confusing.
