I recently installed FreeDOS on an old laptop and then transferred some dosbox based GOG games I own to the FreeDOS installation. The problem is the manuals for these games is in PDF format and I cannot find a working DOS based PDF viewer.
The one program I could find, called
psview crashed and gave me this output when I tried it on a PDF:
TEMP directory: c:\\ Bad command or filename - 'pdftops'. CHDIR failed for 'c:\gs'. Bad command or filename - 'gs386'. C:\ Bad command or filename - 'lxpic'. File not found: 'C:\TEMP.PS' (Couldn't get the rest of output because screen scrolled past really fast) PSVIEW collapsed to DOS (End of output)
I also tried viewing PDFs in two web browsers that run in FreeDOS called Arachne and Dillo, both in vain. Any way to view PDF files in FreeDOS?
