Distill the postscript file using Adobe's distiller.
Since Adobe does not support our server operating system for its
distiller product, you need to jump through one hoop. You can either
transfer the postscript file over to any PC or Macintosh where you
have the distiller or use the distiller we have available on the
To do the latter, you need to log into
girshick.stanford.edu via the
klogin sequence. PC and Mac users will use
PC-Samson or MacSamson respectively and open a new connection via the
File menu to
girshick.stanford.edu. These things are documented
in the departmental computing guide.
Please note that you'll see the same file system on
girshick as on
rgmiller and therefore there is no need to transfer files back and
forth. Executing the command
will produce the required PDF file
foo.pdf which is
conformant to NSF specifications.
For those of you using a distiller on other unix systems, the script
mknsfpdf simply invokes the command
distill -compatlevel 3.0 -embedallfonts on -subsetfonts on -maxsubsetpct 99 foo.ps
We now have a preliminary distilling command that makes distilling
transparent on our server. This will be moved into the Emacs menu
