Subject: FYI: Printing PostScript Files

To facilitate those of us who are new to printing PostScript files, I
copy the '00README.ps' from the linguistics archive (without
permission), and supplement what I've found out about printing PS on
Mac. If you have hints on printing PS on IBM, don't hesitate to share
with us.
 ***** Beginning of 00README.ps *****

NOTE: If you're not used to printing PostScript files, you may want to
 download the "postscrp.ini" file to use for printing. The trick
 on Unix systems is to queue the postscrp.ini ahead of the print file,
 e.g. hl5.ps -

$ print_command postscrp.ini hl5.ps

(Here, $ is the UNIX prompt, and you substitute your local printer
spooling command plus any required switches in place of print_command.
The printer, of course, *MUST* be a PostScript printer.)

On a Macintosh, you may use the program MacLPR_1.3 (available in BinHexed
form as /linguistics/software/mac/MacLPR_1.3.hqx) to print PostScript
files (e.g, BRC.ps). Once again, the printer *MUST* be a PostScript
printer.
 ***** End of 00README.ps *****

For Mac users:
 If you have an application called 'LaserWriter Font
Utilities' (Version 7 or later), which comes with the system/utilities
disks when you buy the computer, you don't need to use the program
MacLPR_1.3. What you need to do is:

1) Open the application 'LaserWriter Font Utilities'
2) Pull down the Utilities Menu
3) Choose the option 'Download PostScript files'
4) After the dialogue box appears, select the file to be printed
5) Press return/OK if you don't change the default 'log' name
 <The file should be senting to the printer.>

If you use MacLPR_1.3, what you need to do is:

1) Open the application 'MacLPR_1.3'
2) Pull down the Files Menu
3) Choose the option 'Open files'
4) After the dialogue box appears, select the file to be printed
5) Press return/OK if a printing dialogue box appears.
 <The file should be senting to the printer.>
