I need to convert a bunch of Digital Research manuals (CP/M days) to 
pdf. I have the .tex files and have W32TeX installed in 64-bit Windows 
7. pdfTeX works fine on most most TeX documents but DR's use dot 
commands instead of backslashes. Any "filters", macros or preprocesser 
stuff that will get me plainTeX to feed to pdfTeX out there? I have the 
DR TEX manual (found one in pdf format) but I'm not really a programmer 
to roll my own and am brand-new to TeX.
