Thank you for maintaining the web-site, it has been and continues to be very
useful to me whenever I have to learn something new about TeX.

I am writing because I have a problem with PSTricks that I do not seem to be
a ble to solve, even after several hours of trying to follow the
instructions on your web-site. I simply want to learn how to compile using
PDFLaTeX a file containing PSTricks objects (such as psmatrix). I have tried
to follow carefully the instructions in your web-site (
http://tug.org/PSTricks/main.cgi?file=pdf/pdfoutput) that describe how to
use the package auto-pst-pdf (including enabling write18 appropriately), but
to no avail. The file compiles without errors, but the psmatrix does not
appear in the final pdf file.

Please, help me out. I use the latest version of PDFLaTeX in MiKTeX. I have
included the code below.

Thank you,
Alex Aguado
