I have come across an ancient (1995) LaTeX file which was (surely) once compliant, but now does not compile at all. Is there any way to rescue it?
My actual question is much more precise. I want a copy of the follow paper on the arXiv:
Downloading the pdf source produces something which looks like a document on a4 paper printed on US letter (the bottoms of some pages are cut off). However, if you download the TeX source from the arXiv, then it doesn't compile (even adding .tex, naturally). I'm using an up to date version of TeXshop on a mac.
