There are several debugging switches that are detected by the interpreter. There is, therefore, a chance that glyphs may be wrong, or missing in the output when this fallback is used.

General switches Input control filename Causes Ghostscript to read filename and treat its contents the same as the command line. This must be an absolute path. Each argument must be valid PostScript, either individual tokens as defined by the token operator, or a string containing valid PostScript.

For example, A3 is -sx Default values for these arguments are equal to argument names. Special instructions to be inserted into C code for generating the output. There is also a handy refresh command called ‘Redisplay’ that will reload the current view so you can check out any changes that may have occurred since first opening the document. Also, since some devices write output files when opened, there may be an extra blank page written pdfwrite, ps2write, eps2write, pxlmono, pxlcolor, Invoking Ghostscript This document describes how to use the command line Ghostscript client.

Debugging The information here describing is probably interesting only to developers. Third-party font renderers may be incompatible with devices that can embed fonts in their output such as pdfwritebecause such renderers may store fonts in a form from which Ghostscript cannot get the necessary information for epa, for example, the Microtype fonts supplied with the UFST. The interpreter also quits gracefully if it encounters end-of-file or control-C. There is no particular reason to use these instead of the corresponding fonts in the Ghostscript distribution which are of just as good qualityexcept to save about a gxview of disk space, but the installation documentation explains how to do it on Unix.


On some systems, Ghostscript may read the input one character at a time, which is useful for programs such as ghostview that generate input for Ghostscript dynamically and watch for some response, but can slow processing.

Some printers can print at several different resolutions, letting you balance resolution against printing speed. Provide a True Type font with Unicode Encoding. When Ghostscript finishes executing the file, it exits back to the shell. It controls grid fitting gsviea True Type fonts Sometimes referred to as “hinting”, but strictly speaking the latter is a feature of Type 1 fonts.

Because of bugs in the SCO Unix kernel, Ghostscript will not work if you select direct screen output and also allow it to write messages on the console. The format is similar to FAPIfontmapbut gsvies must contain few different entries:.

If UFST needs it and the command line argument is not specified, Ghostscript prints a warning and searches symbol set files ysview the current directory. You can switch devices at any time by using the selectdevice procedure, for instance like one of these:. A directory listed in the section How Ghostscript finds filesexcept the current directory; The value of the system parameter GenericResourceDir ; The name of the resource category for instance, CMap epd The name of the resource instance for instance, Identity-H Due to possible variety of the part 1, the first successful combination is used.

For this situation, you can supply Ghostscript with the command line option: Working around bugs in X servers The ” use Devices may, or may not, have support for spot colors.

If -zdevice is not used, the Ghostscript device bmpmono or pbmraw will be used to create the bitmap. This prevents allocation of excessively large amounts of memory for the transparency buffer stack. This may appear as white or black rectangles where characters should appear; or characters may appear in “inverse video” for instance, white on a black rectangle rather gsviwe black on white.

Overprinting is not allowed gsvifw devices with an additive process gsciew model. It is possible to specify a particular output intent where int is an integer a value of 0 is the same as not specifying a number.


How to Use Ghostscript

The effects of overprinting should not be confused with the PDF 1. This switch is primarily useful for PDF creation using the pdfwrite device when retaining the color spaces from the original document is important. In this case, spot colors will pass through unprocessed assuming the device supports those colorants.

Command line options Unless otherwise noted, these switches can be used on all platforms. How to fix EPS with incorrect bounding box? There are other utility scripts besides ps2pdfincluding pdf2psps2epsipdf2dscps2asciips2ps and ps2ps2.

The format specifier is of a form similar to the C printf format. While the ICC does define a named color format, this structure can in practice be much more general. With this interface it is possible to provide this definition.

If this happens, try setting useXPutImage to false.

Only 0, 1 and 2 are currently allowed. Takes the next argument as a file name as usual, but takes all remaining arguments even if they have the syntactic form of switches and defines the name ARGUMENTS in userdict not systemdict as an array of those strings, before running the file.

In all but special cases image interpolation uses a Mitchell filter function to scale the contributions for each output pixel.

It is used this way in the examples at the beginning of this document.
