This has already been done. Follow the link from statlib to our web page to
get display.s and related files. Note that I am currently improving display.s
to easily work with PC versions of LaTeX other than PCTeX. The default
version it will work with in the future will be the excellent public domain
program FPTeX (i.e., the system commands 'latex' and 'dvips' and 'windvi'
will be invoked as needed). The web address is below, but be sure
to re-download it in about 10 days, assuming you see that the file dates
have changed by then. -Frank
