That's what I use as well. I thought I had a "gv" alias for ghostview which
is how I discovered the command. It has worked reliably for me for years,
though some PDFs do give it indigestion and some scanned documents are
difficult to read due to the way it does bitmap scaling.
Is the searching function just not possible for programs using gs as a
backend? Does anyone know if there any plans to fix this shortcoming?
