This webpage aims to explain briefly the use of TeX to prepare slide presentations.
There are many ways of doing this and I will concentrate on the one I use: pdflatex (using the foils class) and ppower4. This results in a PDF file which can be viewed/projected/displayed using, for example, the Adobe Reader.
This document covers only the most basic functionality of ppower4: for more bells and whistles consult the manual.
My aim with this document has been brevity. There is plenty of further information online: be it other ways to generate slide presentations with TeX and/or more comprehensive examples than the one discussed here. Some of these are mentioned in the Links section.
