NAME
postreverse - reverse the page order in a PostScript file SYNOPSIS
postreverse [-o list] [-r] [file] /usr/lib/lp/postscript/postreverse DESCRIPTION
The postreverse filter reverses the page order in files that conform to Adobe's Version 1.0 or Version 2.0 file structuring conventions, and writes the results on the standard output. Only one input file is allowed and if no file is specified, the standard input is read. The postreverse filter can handle a limited class of files that violate page independence, provided all global definitions are bracketed by %%BeginGlobal and %%EndGlobal comments. In addition, files that mark the end of each page with %%EndPage: label ordinal comments will also reverse properly, provided the prologue and trailer sections can be located. If postreverse fails to find an %%EndProlog or %%EndSetup com- ment, the entire file is copied, unmodified, to the standard output. Because global definitions are extracted from individual pages and put in the prologue, the output file can be minimally conforming, even if the input file was not. OPTIONS
-o list Select pages whose numbers are given in the comma-separated list. The list contains single numbers N and ranges N1 - N2. A missing N1 means the lowest numbered page, a missing N2 means the highest. The page range is an expression of logical pages rather than physical sheets of paper. For example, if you are printing two logical pages to a sheet, and you specified a range of 4, then two sheets of paper would print, containing four page layouts. If you specified a page range of 3-4, when requesting two logical pages to a sheet; then only page 3 and page 4 layouts would print, and they would appear on one physical sheet of paper. -r Do not reverse the pages in file. EXAMPLES
Example 1: Examples of postreverse. o select pages 1 to 100 from file and reverse the pages: example% postreverse -o1-100 file To print four logical pages on each physical page and reverse all the pages: example% postprint -n4 file | postreverse To produce a minimally conforming file from output generated by dpost without reversing the pages: example% dpost file | postreverse -r EXIT STATUS
The following exit values are returned: 0 Successful completion. non-zero An error occurred. ATTRIBUTES

No attempt has been made to deal with redefinitions of global variables or procedures. If standard input is used, the input file will be read three times before being reversed. SunOS 5.10 9 Sep 1996 postreverse(1)

NAME
posttek - PostScript translator for Tektronix 4014 files SYNOPSIS
posttek [-c num] [-f name] [-m num] [-n num] [-o list] [-p mode] [-w num] [-x num] [-y num] [file...] /usr/lib/lp/postscript/posttek DESCRIPTION
The posttek filter translates Tektronix 4014 graphics files into PostScript and writes the results on the standard output. If no files are specified, or if - is one of the input files, the standard input is read. OPTIONS
-c num Print num copies of each page. By default, only one copy is printed. -f name Print text using font name. Any PostScript font can be used, although the best results will be obtained only with constant width fonts. The default font is Courier. -m num Magnify each logical page by the factor num. Pages are scaled uniformly about the origin which, by default, is located at the cen- ter of each page. The default magnification is 1.0. -n num Print num logical pages on each piece of paper, where num can be any positive integer. By default, num is set to 1. -o list Print pages whose numbers are given in the comma-separated list. The list contains single numbers N and ranges N1 - N2. A missing N1 means the lowest numbered page, a missing N2 means the highest. The page range is an expression of logical pages rather than physical sheets of paper. For example, if you are printing two logical pages to a sheet, and you specified a range of 4, then two sheets of paper would print, containing four page layouts. If you specified a page range of 3-4, when requesting two logical pages to a sheet; then only page 3 and page 4 layouts would print, and they would appear on one physical sheet of paper. -p mode Print files in either portrait or landscape mode. Only the first character of mode is significant. The default mode is landscape. -w num Set the line width used for graphics to num points, where a point is approximately 1/72 of an inch. By default, num is set to 0 points, which forces lines to be one pixel wide. -x num Translate the origin num inches along the positive x axis. The default coordinate system has the origin fixed at the center of the page, with positive x to the right and positive y up the page. Positive num moves everything right. The default offset is 0.0 inches. -y num Translate the origin num inches along the positive y axis. Positive num moves everything up the page. The default offset is 0.0. EXIT STATUS
The following exit values are returned: 0 Successful completion. non-zero An error occurred. FILES
