DESCRIPTION

Try to fix common PostScript problems that break postprocessing.

OPTIONS

-h, --help display this help and exit
-v, --version
  display version information and exit
-q, --quiet
  don’t print informational messages
-o, --output=FILE
  save result in FILE. If FILE is ‘-’, send to stdout
-f, --force
  force full rewrite by ghostscript
-n, --no-fix don’t fix the FILE, but still honor ‘-o’
-c, --check, --dry-run
  don’t perform any action

    Fixes:

- Remove junk before and after PostScript content - Use only Unix end of lines (\n) - Remove empty lines - Fix Apple prologue (fixmacps) - Fix FrameMaker prologue (fixfmps) - Fix CorelDraw prologue (fixnt) - Fix Windows NT 3.5/4.0 prologue (fixnt) - Fix Windows 95 prologue - Ensure there is a ‘%%BeginSetup/%%EndSetup’ section - Removes Canvas’ extraneaous ‘%%EndDocument:’ comments - Split too long lines
If the FILE seems really in a bad state, ghostscript may be used to perform a full rewrite. The output might then be significantly bigger, but much safer.
