These psuedo operators are required for some files from QuarkXPress.

Some specialized printer drivers operate this way as well, but most devices are general and need to be directed to a particular file or printer. Released with GSview 3. A guide to international paper sizes can be found at.

It is also possible to influence the path using standard, or your own environment variables, using the custom Postscript operator getenv. If you get strange behavior or “out of memory” messages, try setting useBackingPixmap to false. This can complicate substitutions for fonts with non-Roman names.

If the array consists of 3 elements, the first element is a string, which specifies Registry ; the second element is a string, which specifies Ordering ; the third element is a number, which specifies Supplement. Rules and definitions specific to the library on all platforms are in lib. Improving performance Ghostscript attempts to find an optimum balance between speed and memory consumption, but there are some cases in which you may get a very large speedup by telling Ghostscript to use more memory.

Add WMF for all platforms.

Page calculation for descending page order was wrong. To look up fonts, after exhausting the search method described in the next sectionit concatenates together.

Used to resolve relative paths in FAPIcidfmap. In addition, calling ghostscript with –debug will list all the currently defined non visual trace debugging flags, both in their short form as listed above for use with -Z and in a long form, which can be used as in: Put stdout into binary mode.


This was intended primarily for getting around DOS’s character limit on the length of a command line. Environment Variables It is also possible to influence the path using standard, or your own environment variables, using the custom Postscript operator getenv. The user may set it as explained in Resource-related parameters.

This switch is primarily useful for PDF creation using the pdfwrite device when retaining the color spaces from the original document is important. Also, on Solaris 2.

How to use Ghostscript

All the normal switches and procedures for interpreting PostScript files also apply to PDF files, with a few exceptions. The search for a resource file depends on whether the value of the system parameter GenericResourceDir specifies an absolute path.

Sometimes these are dependent on the build and other times they are inherent in the architecture of Ghostscript the graphics library does not support bit co-ordinates in device gsvew for example, and most likely never will. Ghostscript’s own initialization files, fonts, and files named on the command line. It has some colour highlighting, but no page numbering, no line numbering, and For example, if the file is using svanner, differences can be seen in the appearance of the output from the tiff24nc and tiff32nc devices which use an RGB and a CMYK process color models.

The default device used by epstool is monochrome bmpmono or pbmraw. If the array gview of 2 elements, the first element is a string, which specifies Ordering ; the second element is a number, which specifies Supplement. On TrueType fonts, this is often a hollow sqaure.

If this process fails at any step, Ghostscript looks for a file whose name is the concatenation of the value of the FontResourceDir system parameter and the font name, with no extension.

Paper sizes known to Ghostscript Appendix: This is necessary when running special utility programs such as font2c and pcharstrwhich must bypass normal PostScript access protection.


Aliases are not possible. So, to ensure your changes have an effect, you should do one of the following: Our new policy is to try to render broken PDF’s, and also to print a warning, so that Ghostscript is still useful as a sanity-check for invalid files.

If there is a mismatch between the device color model and the output intent, the output intent profile will be used as a proofing profile, since that is the intended rendering. Initially the B paper sizes are the ISO sizes, e.

General switches Input control filename Causes Ghostscript to read filename and treat its contents the same as the command line. The path may be either absolute or relative.

Only 1 and 42 are currently allowed. This software is provided AS-IS with no warranty, either express or implied. You can get a brief help message by invoking Sdanner with the -h or -?

How to use Ghostscript

scannrr Avoid integer overflow on 16bit machines when calculating width and height. FontType interger PostScript type for this font. The bitmap size normally used is mm wide letter width by mm high A4 height.

There is, therefore, a chance that glyphs may be wrong, or missing in the output when this fallback is used. For complete description of the devices distributed with Ghostscript and their options, please see the devices section of the documentation. The value is platform dependent. In addition, if the output device color model matches the output intent color model, then the destination ICC profile will be the output intent ICC profile.

The “-b Calculate BoundingBox from image” option works by scanning a bitmap returned by Ghostscript. The Ghostscript distribution includes some Unix shell scripts to use with Ghostscript in different environments.
