Hi to all (La)TeX users.

I'm doing some tests with hyperbasics.tex.  Anybody out there knowing and using
it?  It is a very simple and minimal set of macros for building hyperlinks when
typing your input file in plain TeX.  It works fine for me with dvi output
format, but hyperlinks are not there any more in the pdf format generated with:
`dvips -z file' and then `ps2pdf file'.  Is there a way to keep the hyperlinks
that are in the dvi format also in pdf?  I've seen that lanlmac.tex does so: it
uses hyperbasics.tex to build hyperlinks in dvi format that survive also in
pdf.  How does it achieve that?

Thanks to anybody who can provide any suggestion.
