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 postscript 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.
