Reader for Adobe Acrobat PDF Files

All the download files on this web site, unless otherwise stated, are in a file format called PDF®, also known as Adobe® Acrobat®. To view (and print) any PDF file, you must have software on your computer that can open this file format.

There are many free software programs that will open and view PDF (Portable Document Format) files. But you must download and install it on your computer. Remember that if you are in an organization with a Network Administrator or System Administrator, check with them first before you install any new software on your computer.

While you can get Adobe Acrobat Reader software from Adobe, the originator of the PDF format, we recommend another (also free) software, from Foxit Reader for windows, and Foxit Reader for Linux are free, and much easier to download (only 2.1 Megabytes, a fraction of the size of Adobe's download), and Foxit starts faster than Adobe's reader.

If you are using the Linux operating system, Foxit has a free (for non-commercial use) PDF reader for you. Foxit has been tested on Fedora 4 and SuSE Linux 10.0.
