NAME

       psf - PostScript filter

SYNOPSIS

       psf  [-p]  [-olist]  [-#N]  [-r] [-mmessage] [-land] [-upside] [-2] [-securityN[,message]]
       [-c]  [-inputtrayN]  [-outputtrayN]  [-ips_ignore]  [-ips_fit]  [-ips_error]   [-noreport]
       [-sort[N]]  [-duplex]  [-noduplex]  [-tumble] [-selectstring] [-courierold] [-nondsc] [--]
       [file] ...

DESCRIPTION

       Psf can be used to change the behavior  of  a  PostScript  program.   It  uses  the  Adobe
       structuring  conventions  to  perform  operations  like  page selection, changing the page
       order, rotate pages, print multiple copies, use the printers secondary  paper  input,  and
       the  printing  of a message across each page.  The concatenated input files are assumed to
       form one PostScript program conforming to the PS-Adobe-2.0 structuring  conventions.   The
       output conforms to the same conventions.  The -p option can be used to convert input files
       from text to PostScript before any further processing takes place.
       In all options with a variable part expressed by italics, except the  -sort  option,  that
       variable  part need not be part of the option argument, but can be the next argument.  For
       example: `psf -#1' and `psf -# 1' have the same effect.

OPTIONS

       -p     This option is an exception in that the input files are treated as  printable  text
              and sent to psprint(1) before any further processing takes place.

       -olist Select  the  pages  mentioned  in the list, which has the same format as is used in
              troff(1) utilities.  List is a comma separated list of page numbers (N) and  ranges
              (N1-N2).   The  initial  or  trailing  number  of  a range can be left unspecified.
              Neither the pages in the PostScript input, nor in the list need to be ordered.
              Example: -o-4,9,11-13,15- will cause the pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 9, 11, 12, 13, 15 and 16
              of a 16 page document to be present in the output.

       -#N    Causes N copies of each page to be printed.

       -r     Reverse the page order.

       -mmessage
              Print  the  message  diagonally across each page in point size 54 outline helvetica
              bold.

       -land  Print each page in landscape mode. I.e. rotated 90 degrees.

       -upside
              Print each page upside down. Assumes upright A4.

       -2     Each page produced by the options and input files described above is reduced  by  a
Binary file (standard input) matches
