I am sure I read that Slic3r will work with DLP printers, but how?????

You have to enter nozzle sizes and all kinds of things which are not part of DLP printing.

Is it me, not able to read or what.

Slic3r is not the slicer to use for a DLP printer. Slic3r creates tool path gcode for machines that draw each layer like a pen draws on paper. A DLP type SLA printer projects the entire layer on the build plate/print simultaneously. There is no tool path except to change the shape of the projected image with each step of the Z axis.

Step 15 goes into the software...

Technically Slic3r is able to produce a layer by layer SVG for use with a DLP, but it's severely limited in configurability.
