A set of utilities for manipulating DSC compliant postscript. The
following programs are included:
impose: A preprocessor to pstops for creating 2-up printouts. It
tries to remove white space from the printout by probing the original
postscript for the printed area's bounding box.  This makes the
output more esthetic than a simplistic layout of non-cropped original
bboxx: Extracts the bounding boxes of a postscript file, with the
option of entering the bounding box into the file. This program uses
the ghostscript bbox device.
fixtd: Sets options in a Postscript file asking the printer to turn
on tumbling or duplex printing.
psbl: Rearranges pages in a file to create booklets.
