Most papers are provided in Portable Document Format (pdf), which can be read with Acrobat Reader. Unfortunately, many of the older papers had to be scanned from microfiche, and thus are quite large and of poor quality. Some of the articles are provided in Postscript (ps), a free reader for which is Ghostscript or one of its variants. The larger Postscript files may be compressed using gzip (ps.gz) provided by GNU or using UNIX "compress" (ps.Z).
