2.1.1 Getting TeX

TeX is a mighty typesetter. PP3 calls TeX in order to actually create the stellar map. The result is a Postscript file.

There are two major TeX variants for Windows, namely MikTeX and TeX Live. Both are rather similar in their functionality, and both come with a nice installation tool. Please assure that the PSTricks package as part of TeX is installed, however this is highly probable anyway.
