... Feel free to add your own example above to help other Linux-lovers !


This wrapper script invokes gs(1) with following arguments

-q -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pdfwrite

as well as the appropriate -dOutputFile argument, all preceded and followed by any command-line arguments. Finally, the security option -dSAFER is prepended before all the other options.

The version-specific ps2pdf scripts all invoke this one with the addition of the respective compatibility level option.


This document was last revised for Ghostscript version 9.07.
