There is a 'free' way to create PDF's - sometimes. Acrobat Exchange
was (is? ) included on Linear Technology's data CD-ROM (1996 v1.0),
which many of us electronics types will have on their shelf. This
includes PDF writer, which can produce PDF from any windows app. by
pretending to be a printer driver.
