I'm using Doxygen quite a bit and went back to 1.8.0 because 1.8.2 
doesn't create my PDF docs (I investigated a bit, found no solution and 
run out of time...).

It's proably 10 years since I last needed a PS file and, back then, I 
used DVI just because I had to.
I don't feel any need for them nowadays; PDF alone is fine for me.

  bye & Thanks
