CTAN up­load: graph­icx-psmin

Date: Septem­ber 23, 2005 12:26:04 PM CEST
On Wed, 21 Sep 2005, Hen­dri Adri­aens sub­mit­ted a new pack­age graph­icx-psmin to CTAN. This pack­age is an ex­ten­sion of the stan­dard graph­ics bun­dle and pro­vides a way to in­clude re­peated postscript graph­ics (ps, eps) only once in a postscript doc­u­ment. This pro­vides a way to get smaller postscript doc­u­ments when hav­ing, for in­stance, a logo on ev­ery page. This pack­age only works when post-pro­cessed with dvips, which should at least have ver­sion 5.95b! The dif­fer­ence for the pdf file is min­i­mal (as ghostscript al­ready in­cludes only a sin­gle copy of graph­ics files). Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: macros/la­tex/con­trib/graph­icx-psmin Li­cense: LPPL Thanks for the up­load. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

graph­icx-psmin – Re­duce size of PostScript files by not re­peat­ing im­ages

The pack­age is an ex­ten­sion of the stan­dard la­tex-graph­ics bun­dle and pro­vides a way to in­clude re­peated PostScript graph­ics (ps, eps) only once in a PostScript doc­u­ment. This leads to smaller PostScript doc­u­ments when hav­ing, for in­stance, a logo on ev­ery page. The pack­age only works when post-pro­cessed with dvips, which should be ver­sion 5.95b or later.

The dif­fer­ence for a re­sult­ing dis­tilled PDF file is min­i­mal (as Ghostscript and Adobe Dis­tiller only in­clude a sin­gle copy of each graph­ics file, any­way).
