   notex: remove tex and latex constructs

   notex(input: in, output: out)

   input: a tex or latex file
   output: the file with:
      '\xxx' command words converted to spaces,
      '{$}' converted to spaces
      free floating '.' ',' '(' ')' removed
      comments (%) removed

      multiple spaces are comressed to single spaces.
      multiple lines are compressed to 2 lines (to preserve the
      paragraph structure).

      Only characters numbers and blanks are left behind

   This reduces the number of words counted by wc to something close to correct.
   It is harsher than untex in that it specifically filters out
   everything except numbers, alphabetic chracters and the blank.

   Thomas D. Schneider

   citations and comments on lines by themselves leave a blank line.
