I was asked to convert a file from LaTeX format to TeX format, so it could be compiled by TeX. I use LaTeX a lot, but I'm quite unfamiliar with TeX. And the file is pretty long. So I was wondering if there's software or trick could simplify a bit the task.
BTW, I haven't installed TeX on my Ubuntu machine because I think I can use pdftex to test if the file is compatible with TeX. Am I right?
The reason that I need to do this is that my supervisor asked me to convert something that I wrote with LaTeX into TeX style because he only knows how to use TeX. So the file should not only be compiled by TeX, but the grammar should also be TeX style so my supervisor could understand and modify it.
