NAME fixps - sanitize PostScript files


DESCRIPTION Try to fix common PostScript problems that break postprocessing.

OPTIONS -h, --help display this help and exit

-v, --version display version information and exit

-q, --quiet dont print informational messages

-o, --output=FILE save result in FILE. If FILE is -, send to stdout

-f, --force force full rewrite by ghostscript

-n, --no-fix dont fix the FILE, but still honor -o

-c, --check, --dry-run dont perform any action

Fixes: - Remove junk before and after PostScript content - Use only Unix end of lines (0 - Remove empty lines - Fix Apple prologue (fixmacps) - Fix FrameMaker prologue (fixfmps) - Fix CorelDraw prologue (fixnt) - Fix Windows NT 3.5/4.0 prologue (fixnt) - Fix Windows 95 prologue - Ensure there is a %%BeginSetup/%%End- Setup section - Removes Canvas extraneaous %%EndDocument: comments - Split too long lines

If the FILE seems really in a bad state, ghostscript may be used to perform a full rewrite. The output might then be significantly bigger, but much safer.
