VTeX/2 is a TeX program for OS/2 that generates PDF or PostScript output immediately from the TeX source file.

VTeX/2 comes with a comprehensive LaTeX system, including many additional fonts and macro packages, as well as the Bibtex and Makeindex programs.

A basic plain TeX system is provided, too.

Once installed and configured your LaTeX system on OS/2, you are free to integrate your tools with many other editors and tools available for OS/2!

LaTeX is a software open source and freeware, available under LPPL license (The LaTeX Project Public License).
