I'm trying to read the 'paper.ascii' file contained in /usr/share/doc/psd/12.make/paper.ascii.gz and it is a mess. This is a tutorial on "make". I've unzipped the file in a WinXP machine and I can't find a display tool that will not show the formatting stuff in the file.

What is the "right" way to read this file?

Well, more or less, more(1) or less(1)? Assuming you gunzip(1) it first. Looks just fine on an Eterm, albeit not very wide columns when you're running X at a "high screen res...'

Actually there's probably a better (more appropriate
UNIX historical [standard]) tool, like some TEX thing,
whether laTEX, teTEX, etc., but I dunno that one.

Perhaps the funniest one I tried was TextMaker
(from softmaker.de).  Looked great, caught some
words in spell check, but couldn't handle something
about the header encoding, so the title is thus:

        "PPMMaakkee ---- AA TTuuttoorriiaall"

Hope *you* don't get double vision reading it ;-)
