That's a good point, Shriram; one that I had already run into. But LaTeX 
had already complained that it couldn't create a "quick.log" in the PLT 
directory to save the fact that it couldn't find the .Z files. So I 
tried again with administrator priviliges; this time LaTeX had not 
trouble creating log files but still SLaTeX generated no .Z files.


PS: I just noticed your name shows up in the acknowledgments of at least 
4 of my Scheme books here (Little/Seasoned/Reasoned Schemer, EOPL), 
nice! :-)
