postscript file and pdf file
On web if I need to download an ariticle, most of them are pdf files,
which I can open it through acroread program. Ocassionally, there are
postscript files(ps files). I noticed the size of a ps file is very big,
while pdf file is small.
I am curious why some people use ps files, not pdf files. I know that it
is very easy to use ps2pdf, pdf2ps to change between them. I am just
wondering if there is any advantage for using postscript files.
By the way, for printing a postscript file, the printer needs to be a
postscript printer, right?
Thank you very much.
Xia...print PDF file from command line to postscript file
How do I print a PDF file from the command line so that:
1. It prints only page 34 and nothing else.
2. Prints page 34 to a PostScript called "34.ps"
I would like to script this so that I can run it from an VT100 terminal.

I am looking for a script that can automatically merge a serie of 'pdf'
files into one 'pdf' file.
I know about the "Insert pdf file" option in adobe, but I have about 30
'pdf' files, and need a more automatic solution.

Is there any perl module to convert a postscript file to a jpeg or gif
format. I create the postscript file from a canvas object which dumps
the display of the canvas to the postscript file. I thought of using
WinPhoto to save it in an xpm format but then again I did not know how
to save the non visible portions of the window into the xpm file. I
thought there might be some modules available for the conversion but
couldnt find any out there. Or if there is a way to save the canvas
image (both visible and invisible parts) to a suitable file then it
would be great for me to use.

We need to convert about 500 multipage non-searchable PDF files into
searchable PDF files. The original PDFs just contain the scanned
documents and we plan to run them through an OCR program which will
afterwards save them back in the PDF format. It seems that Omnipage 12
Pro Office edition would be able to do the job but Omnipage 12
Standard, which is much less expensive, seems to have many of the same
features. Unfortunately I wasn't able to find a resource which lists
the exact differences between the two programs. For now we'd require
only one or two licences...How to: split 1 pdf file to 2 pdf files?
I have a problem with a file that I retrieve off

An guidance going about writing code for this problem would be
What are the particular conditions you need for splitting. There are a
number of third party solutions, but most will split on page or file names.
If you had the source of the PDF files, I could show you how my OctoTools
could produce the output already split, on just about ANY criteria, but
doing it with existing pdf's could be tricky. Another way to approach your
