    Hey guys I've seen a few stuff out there on LaTex and just wanted to know how do I get a program that can use that format on my computer? Kind of like a word document thing where I can type it or something to that effect...thanks

    The best way to go...

    Search for MikTex on Google and download the latest version.

    Then search for WinEdt on Google, and download the latest version.

    Install MikTex, and then install WinEdt.

    Open WinEdt, and you're ready to go. You'll need a few commands to generate a PDF file with LaTeX, but once you get that far you can come back here and I'll send you some.
