CTAN package update: dvipsconfig
Date: August 7, 2006 8:07:10 AM CEST
Volker Kuhlmann has provided a new version of his dvipsconfig package.
> This is a set of PostScript header files which can be used to
> control the printer, like simplex/duplex printing, or the printing,
> like screen frequencies of images, or the addition of a grid
> underlay. These header files can be inserted with dvips -P into
> PostScript files generated by dvips, or with the addpsctrl script
> into existing PostScript files.
> New in this version is an upgraded addpsctrl script, and the mmgrid
> and a4grid grid underlays (grids are printed underneath the normal
> page content). mmgrid has its origin in the bottom left corner,
> a4grid in the top left corner. Grids are useful for checking page
> layout designs or printing for correctness.
thanks for the upload; i've replaced the existing dvipsconfig on ctan,
and am updating the catalogue.
For the CTAN team
dvipsconfig – Collection of dvips PostScript headers
This is a collection of dvips PostScript header and dvips config
files. They control certain features of the printer, including:
A4, A3, usletter, simplex, duplex / long edge, duplex / short
edge, screen frequencies of images, black/white invers, select
transparency / paper for tektronix 550/560, manual feeder,
envelope feeder, and tray 1, 2 and 3, and printing a PostScript
grid underneath the page material—very useful for measuring
and eliminating paper feed errors!
