Bernd, thank you very much for the idea. I'll try when I'll have X windows. I would like to install Tiger and the the whole X environment on my Mac, but
I wait until I am sure that Tiger and "terminal" can co-exist.

I do a lot of graphics in standalone PostScript, so I'll need a good
generic PS viewer too, but groffer sounds very interesting.

Thank you

You will also need a PS viewer. Others here will be in better position
to give you some idea what to
look for. Ghostscript is good to have, at least for converting your PS
to PDF if you wish to share your
creation with others.

The easiest way to use Postscript is `groffer' with the option `--ps'. A viewer is started automatically if you are in X Window. Try things like

  groffer --ps some_roff_file

for viewing in a Postscript viewer or

  groffer --pdf some_roff_file

for viewing in a PDF viewer. All needed `groff' options are determined and performed automatically. If you want to see the Postscript source without a
viewer use

  groffer --ps --source file_or_man_page

`groffer' is part of `groff'  since version
