    Saving Postscript output


    Been using gv and vi to build a postscript file. Now I would like to save the output of the program to a disk file. My problem is I can't figure out how to "print to a file". Can someone help. Thanks.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    By "output of the program", I presume you want to execute the postscript application and capture its output. Is the output graphical in nature? In any case, Linux has a postscript interpretor ghostscript which will output to your X-windows display, or can output to a file.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Saving Postscript output

    Thanks 4 ur reply. I was aware of ghostscript properties but thought maybe I missed something somewhere about gv. I am configured to output to XPDF and thought there would be a way to capture the graphics with it but do not see how there either.
