     PSREVERSE(1M)   K-Spool by	Xinet (10/14/99	10.1)	 PSREVERSE(1M)

     NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
	  psreverse - reverse printer output

     SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
	  The program psreverse	reverses the pages for the printer.
	  It is	usually	called from the	lp(1) or lpr(1)	printer
	  script.  One usually pipes the output	of psreverse into

     CAVEATS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  Programs must	minimally conform to PostScript	Document
	  Structuring Comments (begin with the string "%!PS-Adobe-")
	  to be	reversed.  Jobs	that claim to conform, but in fact do
	  not, may not reverse correctly.  This	indicates a bug	in the
	  application that generated the PostScript.  The only
	  solution in this case	is to disable reversing	via the
	  xktalk(1) GUI, or by removing	the call to psreverse from the
	  print	queue's	script (either spooldir/psif-printer for LPR
	  or the printer file in the LP	interface directory).

     BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  Currently, there is no method	to reverse the order of	nonPostScript
 jobs from the UNIX	system.	 Extremely long
	  documents may	not be able to be reversed.  (Current maximum
	  document length is 999 pages.)
