MSVC Problem debugging pdfwrite
2002-07-01 08:33:20 GMT
Peter, The new devs.mak compiles both pdftext and pdxtext. These 2 versions define different data structures for same type names, pdf_font_descriptor_s is an example. MSVC gets confused with it, so that the debugger shows pdxtext data types instead pdftext data types, and the debugging of pdftext isn't longer possible. To work around I locally replaced $(DD)pdtext.dev : $(DEVS_MAK) $(ECHOGS_MAK) $(DD)pdftext.dev $(DD)pdxtext.dev $(SETMOD) $(DD)pdtext -include $(DD)pdftext with $(DD)pdtext.dev : $(DEVS_MAK) $(ECHOGS_MAK) $(DD)pdftext.dev $(SETMOD) $(DD)pdtext -include $(DD)pdftext Can you change the logics of pdftext/pdxtext selection for fixing it ? Thank you. Igor.

GS CompatibilityLevel switch
2002-07-03 09:28:14 GMT
Hello, Setting the switch to 1.1 helps to solve some conversion problems with epstopdf (as far as I could test with 7.03, either bitmap eps or with some Times-Roman fonts from xfig on screen display). This switch seems undocumented, so the current solution is to print a warning. Could it be set in the tex2pdf script without reluctance (in other terms, can it be harmful or even inefficient for normal use ?). Please reply personnaly, I'm not subscribed to the list.

Mixing CMYK pages
2002-07-04 20:41:48 GMT
This is me again with another question :)
I have a PostScript file with four pages, organized this way:
Page 1: Cyan mask
Page 2: Magenta mask
Page 3: Yellow mask
Page 4: Black mask
I want to mix these pages into a single PDF page.
Any ideas ??
Thanks a lot for your time.

Miguel, > I have a PostScript file with four pages, organized this way: > > Page 1: Cyan mask > Page 2: Magenta mask > Page 3: Yellow mask > Page 4: Black mask > > I want to mix these pages into a single PDF page. If the file is DCS 2.0, then epstool will allow you to render each page to a greyscale bitmap, then combine them into a CMYK bitmap, then write it out as an EPS composite page. If it is ordinary PostScript, then epstool won't do it. There are some PostScript methods for rendering only some colours (Separation colour spaces)while leaving the others alone, which would allow you to render one colour at a time, but I don't know if this is supported by ghostscript.

Re: MSVC Problem debugging pdfwrite

Your fix is completely reasonable. It is unfortunate that MSVC has the limitation that it cannot compile multiple files with conflicting names even if only a non-conflicting subset is actually linked into the executable. I will change the comments in devs.mak so that it normally only compiles whichever of pdftext or pdxtext is actually being linked. -- -- L.

Miguel and Russell, Ghostscript does not yet support the /Overprint flag of Separation color space. Once it does, then it will be fairly easy to merge individual C, M, Y and K planes into a CMYK composite. This feature is planned for 8.0 along with support for DeviceN color spaces. We are nearing a commit to CVS with the DeviceN merged code and will have a tester release within a few weeks. The 8.0 release is expected by September (my best guess) but could beat that date, or (hopefully not) be later.
