Description Jonathan Kamens 2001-12-10 03:25:53 UTC
I downloaded FontSheets.ps from
http://www.glyphic.com/free/fontsheets/fontsheets.html and attempted to
view it with "gs FontSheets.ps" with ghostscript-6.51-16.  It dies when I
attempt to move from the first to the second page by hitting return. 
Here's what it says when it dies:

I note the comment in the changelog entry for 6.51-2: "I know that there
are going to be problems in the japanese code, and I need to turn on the
cjk font map from adobe, but it /works/ at the moment."  I wonder if
perhaps this is one fo the referenced problems in the japanese code?

I made this problem go away by commenting out all the uncommented lines in
vflib/kconfig.ps.  But then I got errors about GothicBBB.  I made those go
away by removing all of the files in
/usr/share/ghostscript/Resource/CIDFont.  Then I was able to use
FontSheets.ps, until I attempted to add "loadallfonts" right after
"%%BeginProlog", at which point I got this error, which I don't know what
to do about.  Note the third argument on the stack, which seems to have
some sort of data corruption in it.

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2002-01-10 17:17:22 UTC
Seems to be kanji-related.

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2002-02-22 12:58:07 UTC
Still happens in 6.53.

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2002-05-22 11:00:06 UTC
Happens in 7.05-3 too (from rawhide).

Comment 4 Alex Cherepanov 2002-10-14 14:27:24 UTC
The sample file is incorrect. The file is not aware of Asian fonts and
CIDFont-CMap interaction. The error happens when the file attempts
to interpret a string of 25 characters (odd number) in double-byte

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2002-10-14 20:18:29 UTC

Comment 6 Alex Cherepanov 2002-10-15 15:09:46 UTC
Yes, Ghostscript correctly detects the error in PS program.
