I gather you do not run a Unix box, but both Mac OSX and Windows come close enough. I can't help with Mac OSX, but I'm willing to try compiling those utilities for Cygwin (a *nix environment on top of Windows) -- if you tell a bit more about what you intend to use it for.
Up-conversion of legacy documentation? One-time or continuously? Why involve FrameMaker at all? Would it be easier if you reversed the process, or introduced another exchange/storage format? For some specialized purposes, going for an XML exchange/storage format might be more attractive. E.g. for reference documentation traditionally produced from nroff/troff/groff with the 'man' macro package, DocBook XML might be a good exchange format. man pages can readily be produced from DocBook XML 'refentry', there is a number of utilities that extract embedded source code documentation and emit DocBook refentry, and DocBook XML can be typeset in a number of ways -- including FrameMaker. LaTeX is based on TeX, which can be considered a programming language (it is Turing-complete). This implies that you actually need TeX to 'translate' arbitrary LaTeX documents into something else. In principle, the best way to translate LaTeX to FrameMaker would be a TeX compiler that produces MIF output rather than DVI. MicroPress' TeXpider  works this way to produce HTML from pretty much arbitrary TeX. But most converters assume that your LaTeX documents is plain and simple, i.e. can be interpreted by a mock interpreter. A number of TeX-to-something converters are listed here . kind regards Peter Ring  http://www.micropress-inc.com/webb/wbstart.htm  http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=fmtconv  http://www.tug.org/utilities/texconv/textopc.html Steve Rickaby wrote: > Without having thoroughly thought it through, it seems possible in principle > to construct a LaTeX to MIF filter using a default template.
