uses gs(1) to read an Adobe Portable Document

PostScript(tm) document "output.dsc" that
conforms to Adobe’s Document Structuring
Conventions (DSC) requirements.
document simply tells Ghostscript to read the PDF file and
to display pages one at a time. The generated document can
then be viewed with any PostScript viewer based on
Ghostscript, like ghostview(1) on Unix or
GSview on Windows, with which the user can browse
through the pages of the PDF document in any order.
If no output
file is named on the command line, the name of the output
file is that of the input file with any extension removed,
followed by the extension ".dsc".
The DSC document uses Ghostscript-specific procedures. In
addition, the original PDF document must be accessible when the
DSC document is processed.
You need the file "pdf2dsc.ps" (originally by Russell Lang)
supplied with Ghostscript since release 3.53.
This document was last revised for Ghostscript version 9.07.
