     PSSPLIT(1)	    FullPress by Xinet (10/14/99 10.1)	    PSSPLIT(1)

     NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
	  pssplit - split a PostScript file into separate single-page

     SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  /usr/etc/appletalk/pssplit [ -b ] [ -o destdir ] [ -n
	  filename ] [ -s suffix ] [ input ]

     DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
	  The program pssplit reads a PostScript print job file	and
	  writes separate output files each containing one page	of the
	  job, repeating the PostScript	header and dictionaries	in
	  each file.  While the	resulting output files will not	be
	  EPS, many applications that accept EPS will accept them.

	  The output file(s) written by	pssplit	will each have a
	  pathname of the form destdir/filename.pg<num>of<pgs>suffix,
	  where	<num> is the sequential	page numbers, starting with 1,
	  and <pgs> is the total number	of pages in the	PostScript.
	  There	is no default suffix.

     OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  If the input filename	is not provided, pssplit will read
	  from standard	input.	Warning:  when reading from standard
	  input, pssplit will not be able to fill out any (atend)
	  values in the	PostScript header, which also means it might
	  not know in advance how many pages will be produced (i.e.
	  the pgs part of the output filenames will be ``0'').

	  -b   tells pssplit to	save the last ImageableArea comment in
	       the input PostScript header and put its value into the
	       output PostScript header	as a %%BoundingBox: comment.

	  -o   supplies	the directory destdir (which must start	with
	       `/') where pssplit will write its collection of output
	       files.  The default for destdir is the current working

	  -n   gives the filename portion of the output	file
	       pathnames.  If there is no -n argument, the filename
	       defaults	to the %%Title parameter in the	PostScript
	       header.	If there is also no %%Title in the header,
	       filename	will be	the same as input, unless reading from
	       standard	input, where filename defaults to pssplit.

	  -s   provides	a suffix that is appended to each generated
	       output file name.  Note that there is not an implied
	       `.' or any other	separation character added before the

	  PostScript Document Structuring Comments conventions to be
	  split.  Jobs that claim to conform, but in fact do not, may
	  not split correctly.	This indicates a bug in	the
	  application that generated the PostScript.
