So you want to see what the generated PostScript code will print out
when sent to a printer?

You could, in that *Postscript* buffer, hit:

    M-<  C-@  M->  M-|

and then type out the command:

    gv -

gv should then bring up a X window with the rendered PS.

You may need C-Space for address@hidden

If you don't have gv installed, you may be able to do that with
another viewer.

You can also make a macro from those keystrokes, name it, and bind
that to a key sequence if you will use if often.

Or you can write a quick lisp function that switches to *Postscript*
and calls (shell-command-on-region (point-min) (point-max) "gv -").

To get the output into an Emacs buffer, you'd have to call gs rather
than gv, specifying one of the image backends Emacs can grok, and have
that output to a buffer.  It is doable, but I'd need to bone up on the
docs to figure it out.
