[R] printing from latex help files in R

Dear People,

I would like to print out some of the R help pages pertaining to various
topics. These are available on my system as html files. However they also
appear to be available as latex files in (for example) the R source tree
in the subdirectory library/base/latex. What I am wondering is if it is
possible to convert these latex files into postscript using dvips as is
usually done. The latex files don't appear to be standalone (missing
\begin{document} etc and also seem to have some special macros, so if this
can be done at all, it presumably would have to use some special command.
I looked around for information about this but could not find it. I would
greatly appreciate any information about this.

                                          Sincerely, Faheem Mitha.
