About PDF files:
PDF (Portable Document Format) files are used extensively on this site and the internet in general, as they are (computer) platform independent (that is, the files can be exchanged between hardware running different operating systems, whether it is Windows, Mac OS, Linux). Software is readily available to open, view and print PDF files. Many computer systems come pre-installed with software that can do this. If your computer lacks software that can open PDF files, then download the free Adobe Reader program from this link (Adobe created the PDF file format). Be sure to select the correct platform and operating system for your computer.
