Notes about the Postscript Output

The postscript is produced by FrameMaker. It is printed last page first (as our printers print face up).

A FrameMaker comment in the postscript file says:

% Known Problems:

% Due to bugs in Transcript, the 'PS-Adobe-' is omitted from line 1

/FMversion (3.0) def

so the file actually starts with just %!

This apparently stops ghostview from finding the page identifiers. It has been suggested that editing the first line back to :


corrects this. I have not tried this but it is here as a suggestion.

Other notes:

Figure 8-6 is missing on purpose because it is a photograph of the die which does not scan and print very well - due to the fine detail (official copies of my thesis contain a photograph stuck in).
