NAME

       psselect - select pages from a PostScript file

SYNOPSIS

       psselect [ -q ] [ -e ] [ -o ] [ -r ] [ -ppages ] [ pages ] [ infile [ outfile ] ]

DESCRIPTION

       Psselect  selects  pages  from  a PostScript document, creating a new PostScript file. The
       input PostScript file should follow the Adobe Document Structuring Conventions.

       The -e option selects all of the even pages; it may be used in conjunction with the  other
       page selection options to select the even pages from a range of pages.

       The  -o  option selects all of the odd pages; it may be used in conjunction with the other
       page selection options.

       The -ppages option specifies the pages which  are  to  be  selected.   Pages  is  a  comma
       separated  list of page ranges, each of which may be a page number, or a page range of the
       form first-last. If first is omitted, the first page is assumed, and if last  is  omitted,
       the last page is assumed.

       The  prefix  character  `_'  indicates  that the page number is relative to the end of the
       document, counting backwards. If just this character with no page number is used, a  blank
       page will be inserted.

       The -r option causes psselect to output the selected pages in reverse order.

       Psselect  normally  prints  the  page  numbers  of  the  pages  rearranged;  the -q option
       suppresses this.

       If any of the -r, -e, or -o options are specified, the page range must be given  with  the
       -p option. This is for backwards compatibility with previous versions.

NOTES

       The page number given to psselect is the number of the page counting from the start or end
       of the file, starting at one. The actual page number in the document may be different.
