10.1. Invoking Ghostscript

10.1. Invoking Ghostscript

Typically, Ghostscript will be run by whatever filter you settle upon (I recommend Foomatic if your vendor didn't supply anything that suits you), but for debugging purposes it is often handy to run it directly.

gs -helpwill give a brief listing of options and available drivers (note that this list is the list of drivers compiled in, not the master list of all available drivers).

You might run gs for testing purposes like: `gs <options> -q -dSAFER -sOutputFile=/dev/lp1 test.ps'.
