Description Modestas Mockus 2005-07-13 07:04:15 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
Problem description:
within Oracle application 11.5.10  on RHEL3 I'm printing invoice to PostScript output using IXLIB (Unicode arial.TTF ant times.ttf fonts)
after that i'm converting PostScript to PDF by command:

gs -q -dSAFER -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE#pdfwrite -sPAPERSIZE#a4 \
-sOutputFile#invoice.pdf -dCompatibilityLevel#1.4 -c .setpdfwrite -f

PostScript output is ok, i can view it with command >GS invoice.pdf
The ps to pdf converting is working ok if i have PS file containing 1-7 invoices. (1 invoice: 1-2 pages)
But converting is crashing if file contains 8-50  invoices with error.
Let's say I did printed 30 invoices to PS, convert to pdf and resulting PDF after crashing contains only 3 invoices.
There is no faulty invoice, because i can print invoices No.:  0-20, or No. 5-25, they will print ok, but No. 0-25 will crash

I can convert to pdf with GhostScript 8.51 for Windows:
if my contained 180 invoices, converted PDF will also contain 180 invoices.

atatached files:
1. "" converts ok to "inv_0-5.pdf"
2. "" converts to "inv_0-30.pdf" with crash and rezulting PDF contains only invoices 0-3
3. (convert script)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. made file from Oracle business suite
2. run script:
3. got error

Actual Results:  scripts ends with error and I'm getting pdf witch contains only some(3 or more) of pages, existing in PostScript file.
