Postscript data created by Windows drivers contain
%Trailer info not intended to go to the printer.
Ghostscript tries to send this to stdout but the use of the
-sOutputFile=- option combines it and causes an extra page
to follow every job.  This wastes paper and is annoying.

The following construct in
corrects this problem:

eval "$mpage_cmd | gs -q -sDEVICE=$GSDEVICE \
      -r$RESOLUTION \
      -dNOPAUSE \
      -dSAFER \
      -sOutputFile=\|'cat 1>&3' \
      $COLOR \
      -  3>&1  1>&2 "

what does the %Trailer info look like (I'm trying to sync
this with another report of extra garbage coming from a Windows
postscript driver...)
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-06-25 18:00:59 EDT
yup, looks like something I've seen before with the
Adobe postscript driver. Fix applied in rhs-printfilters-1.55-1,
in the next Raw Hide release.
