NAME

fixps - sanitize PostScript files  

SYNOPSIS

fixps [OPTIONS] FILE  

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
don't 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
don't fix the FILE, but still honor `-o'
-c, --check, --dry-run
don't perform any action
 

Fixes:

- Remove junk before and after PostScript content - Use only Unix end of lines (\n) - 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/%%EndSetup' 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.
