obviously i did something wrong, but i don't know what...
My origianl question comes again at the end.
Casper Dik <firstname.lastname@example.org> asked me whether i've checked
with "diff". Of course i did and did not see anything...
But to have a clear starting point i again cleaned off my psf-installation
and started over from scratch... and now it is working...
and -honest!- i don't know why, but -see above- obviously i did something
Thank you all again,
Bernt Christandl email: email@example.com

Here is my original question:
>Hello managers, > >psf is a print filter utility, to print ascii on ps-printers. >I like it, because it's the only utility i know of, where i print >X lines of length Y on one page, with X and Y being any numbers i like. >(e.g. 85 lines of length 121 characters.) > >I have psf-3.6 (from 1992!) and can't find it any more on the net. >First question: Does any of you know, where this utility is hosted today? > >Recently i changed fron Digital to Sun Environment (new job) and tried >to install psf here. I could install it without problems under >SunOS 4.1.4 and use it as i'm used to. > >But whatever i tried to install it under Solaris 2.6, i failed. >It compiles without errors (sun-cc and gcc-2.7.2), the executables >are built fine and i could run them without errors. The result looks to >my eyes as a correct ps-file (i don't know much about postscript >aside from the starting magic "%!" and the "showpage" or "Cntl_D" i need >to "see" something). > >But when i try to print this file or to display it with ghostscript >(via xv or ghostview) the result is only a blank white page (or many of them). >And the "showpage" IS, where it should be! > >So, what do i miss? Any ideas, hints?
