Ok, I found this out:

The tamilize.c has to be compiled first:

 gcc tamilize.c -o tamilize

For a given .tex file like readme.doc, I had to do:

 ./tamilize readme.doc readme.tex

I had to run tex on readme.tex and it generated the readme.dvi file:

  tex readme.tex

I was then able to convert .dvi to .ps, and then .ps to .pdf using
dvips and ps2pdf respectively.
