       pdf2dsc - generate a PostScript page list of a PDF document


       pdf2dsc input.pdf [ output.dsc ]


       pdf2dsc  uses  gs(1)  to read an Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) document "input.pdf"
       and create a PostScript(tm)  document  "output.dsc"  that  conforms  to  Adobe's  Document
       Structuring Conventions (DSC) requirements.

       This  new  document simply tells Ghostscript to read the PDF file and to display pages one
       at a time.  The generated document can then be viewed with any PostScript viewer based  on
       Ghostscript,  like  ghostview(1)  on  Unix  or  GSview on Windows, with which the user can
       browse through the pages of the PDF document in any order.

       If no output file is named on the command line, the name of the output file is that of the
       input file with any extension removed, followed by the extension ".dsc".


       The  DSC  document  uses  Ghostscript-specific  procedures.  In addition, the original PDF
       document must be accessible when the DSC document is processed.

       You need the file "" (originally by  Russell  Lang)  supplied  with  Ghostscript
       since release 3.53.
