Re: Proposal: psutils (again)

You have my vote :)

Thx :)

Just a question: did/do you build against 1.3.x or 1.5.x?

1.3.x. I'm still not sure if I'm supposed to upgrade and compile against 1.5.x. Since it's more likely to work on 1.3 (for most installations) I still use it.

If someone tells me to use 1.5, I will ... :o)


If the latter, the "test" line in setup.hint should stay for the time being. (IMHO)

I've downloaded the packs & will take a look at them - I have some compiler-waiting to do anyway..

Hi *,

as seen at

the psutils disappeared from the TeX-distribution and are AFAICS not yet a seperate package. The unsupported packages on Jan's site seem to be lost as well, so I compiled it from source and would (enough votes presumed) become the maintainer of the Cygwin port.

I really hope I didn't miss something, because the net is full of unsupported binary versions (even some with a setup-hint), but it doe not seem to have ever made it into the distro.

So I'll try like so many before. Here we go:

@ psutils
sdesc: "psutils - Postscript Utilities"
ldesc: "PSUtils is a collection of useful utilities for manipulating PostScript documents. Programs included are psnup, for placing out several logical pages on a single sheet of paper, psselect, for selecting pages from a document, pstops, for general imposition, psbook, for signature generation for booklet printing, and psresize, for adjusting page sizes."
category: Publishing
test: 1.17-1

No dependencies known. The archives are here: (54k) (64k)

Best Regards,
