  $ make why-RSA-works.pdf

Note:
The makefile script assumes that the 'pdflatex' program is installed.
On Mac OS X, the 'mactex-basic' package appears to be the simplest way to install 'pdflatex'.
'maxtex-basic' is available here: http://www.tug.org/mactex/2012/morepackages.html


To generate a tarfile of the sources:

  $ make why-RSA-works.tar
