I've been using groff to create a PostScript file, then I use the
Linux convert command:

     convert file.pdf

and I've never had a problem with people reading it when I email it
to them, whether they're on mobile devices, PCs, or Macs.

Did I miss something?

I found myself a way out:
with the convert command you can turn a .pdf to a .pdf

convert foo.pdf foo1.pdf

You can read foo1 with adobe reader.
Well, the text ist not very sharp, an not very nice to read.
But it's better than nothing.

Hi groffies,

I wrote a text with groff, converted it to a pdf.
I wanted to send it as a mail attachement to my sister, who works with a
Windows system as many people do. She couldn't open it.
Is a .pdf not like a .pdf?
