Do you use emTeX for (La)TeXing under OS/2? Do you search for a powerful GUI or front-end to operate it easily? Then you may like my pmCSTeX for EPM. This package contains

  1. my macros for the powerful OS/2 editor EPM (free, distributed together with OS/2 or downloadable from the Internet),
  2. additional files that make TeXing easier (LaTeX hypertext help, for instance).

Obsolete notice, comming from 1996: if you encounter slow transfer rate during the transfer of pmCSTeX.zip for EPM from this site, then please try to avoid the download during our working hours. If you have an access to a Unix machine, then you can issue a command like at -f pmCSTeX.cmd 5:00 (I use this trick for downloading files from hobbes).

Omissions in the current distributions
