RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for pdf2dsc (redhat section 1)

PDF2DSC(1)				Ghostscript Tools			       PDF2DSC(1)

NAME
       pdf2dsc - generate a PostScript page list of a PDF document

SYNOPSIS
       pdf2dsc input.pdf [ output.dsc ]

DESCRIPTION
       pdf2dsc	uses  gs(1)  to read an Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) document "input.pdf"
       and create a PostScript(tm) document "output.dsc" that conforms to Adobe's Document Struc-
       turing Conventions (DSC) requirements.

       This  new  document simply tells Ghostscript to read the PDF file and to display pages one
       at a time.  The generated document can then be viewed with any PostScript viewer based  on
       Ghostscript,  like  ghostview(1)  on  Unix  or  GSview on Windows, with which the user can
       browse through the pages of the PDF document in any order.

       If no output file is named on the command line, the name of the output file is that of the
       input file with any extension removed, followed by the extension ".dsc".

CAVEATS
       The DSC document uses Ghostscript-specific procedures.  In addition, the original PDF doc-
       ument must be accessible when the DSC document is processed.

       You need the file "pdf2dsc.ps" (originally by  Russell  Lang)  supplied	with  Ghostscript
       since release 3.53.

SEE ALSO
       gs(1), ghostview(1)

VERSION
       This document was last revised for Ghostscript version 7.05.
