fixnt(1)                            Debian                            fixnt(1)



NAME
       fixnt - Filter for the Windows NT postscript printer driver.

SYNOPSIS
       fixnt < BADFILE.ps > GOODFILE.ps

DESCRIPTION
       The  Windows  NT  postscript driver has a tendency to make broken post-
       script files, that are incompatible with psutils.  fixnt  is  a  filter
       that fixes these problems, allowing the use of psnup(1).

       The  filter  takes  the  broken postscript file on stdin, and outputs a
       fixed postscript file on stdout.  It has no other form  for  invocation
       and takes no options on the command-line.

OPTIONS
       fixnt  takes no options.

BUGS
       fixnt  does  not  check  for NTPSOct94.  For a workaround, use a sed(1)
       command to replace 'NTPSOct94' with 'NTPSOct95', like so:
              sed 's/NTPSOct94/NTPSOct95/g'
       This is particularly important for Windows NT 3.5 users.
