|Subject:||[Groff] How to embed PS char into groff input|
|Date:||Fri, 7 Dec 2001 15:46:21 -0500|
I would greatly appreciate your help in the following.
(a) a PostScript code fragment
(i.e. gsave .... grestore)
which draws a piece of graphic.
This is to be used as the character XY
in a groff input (below).
(b) a set of groff (rather troff) input files
that has the sequence
and each such occurance has to use the
graphic (above) as the character XY.
How do I print these to a PostScript printer ?
Moreover, this printing needs to be done
in an automatic stand alone mode, without
any user interaction.
I am familiar with groff / troff as an user but don't
know the internals. I have the groff man page
and the nice HOWTO by Dean Provins.
I understand that groff uses the
directory to find fonts but don't know
the details or the underlying mechanism.
Also, here I have PS code for one single
character only, not a whole new font.
We are using GNU troff ver 1.10 and would
prefer not to upgrade at this point, if possible.
Tips / pointers, other howto's will be of great help.
