tom backer johnsen replying to tom schneider:

    Thank you for the information.  The command you recommended worked, or at
    least without yielding an error message.  However, I had the same error
    message as before:

here's the problem:
    This is pdfTex, Version 3 ...

what you want to see there is pdfLaTeX

    entering extended mode
    ! Undefined control sequence.
    1.5 \documentclass

    So, assuming that your command worked, it cannot be the line endings.

the line endings probably needed to be
changed anyhow, but the real problem is
that you are using *plain* tex, not latex.
i can't tell you how to launch latex, but
there should be some documentation that
will point you in the right direction.
