NAME

       PS_begin_template — Starts a new template

SYNOPSIS

       #include <pslib.h>

       int PS_begin_template(PSDoc *psdoc, float width, float height)

DESCRIPTION

       Starts  a new template which must be ended by PS_end_template(3). Templates are similar to
       macros which can be placed on a page like images. Within  a  template  one  can  call  any
       drawing function. Once a template has been ended by PS_end_template(3) it can be placed on
       a page by PS_place_image(3). Templates are commonly used for repeating objects  like  page
       headers in order to minimize the document size.

       If  image  reuse  is not turned off (since version 0.4.5 of pslib it is always turned on),
       PS_place_image(3)                may also be called within a template in order to  include
       eps or raster images.

RETURN VALUE

       Returns an id for referencing the template.
