hi list,

I'm about to learn latex-suite. the docu says that for mac-systems the  
default-output is pdf, but in my case it is not (dvi is generated).  
the texrc-file contains the following:


" By default, when you compile a tex file using \ll, then you will be
" generating a .dvi file. Change this line if you want to set another  
" NOTE: Make sure that a target for this format exists in the  
'Compiler rules'
"       section below and is set up properly for your system.
if has('macunix')
         TexLet g:Tex_DefaultTargetFormat = 'pdf'
         TexLet g:Tex_DefaultTargetFormat = 'dvi'


there are also some other little things that suggest that my latex- 
suite-installation does not know that its installed on a mac.

anyone can help me?
