Re: Postscript

Dear Ferreters,

Yahoo!!! I just tried this quick and simple utility called ps2epsi and
it works perfectly. Thanks M.Kessler and M.Pal. Now I could see under
Windows (Corel9 and Canvas7) the PostScript made by Ferret.

If you have ps2epsi you just have to type:   ps2epsi   infile.ps

I still don't know why Postscript made from metafile.plt in Ferret
cannot be viewed after conversion with Fprint or gksm2ps.
I still have a blank page and got no result with Gimp, Ghostview,
(neither Canvas7 or Corel9 after using ps2epsi). The Postscript version
is PS-Adobe-1.0 so maybe that is why. I would love to know why that does
not work, just to know!! Any answer appreciate.

But, that is no longer a problem since I could have a nice result with
"ferret -batch toto.ps" and could allow Windows users to see their maps
after converting it with ps2epsi.

Thanks to Ferret mailing list, always helpfull and very quick.
