in reply to Cropping a postscript file

This seems to work even without the structuring comments (%%EndSetup, %%Page). The following worked for me:

#!/usr/bin/perl $usage="Usage: $0 x1 y1 x2 y2 file.ps"; $x1=shift @ARGV; $y1=shift @ARGV; $x2=shift @ARGV; $y2=shift @ARGV; ($x1 && $y2 && $x2 && $y2 ) or die "$usage\n"; $w=$x2-$x1; $h=$y2-$y1; $flag=0; while (<>) { if (/^%%BoundingBox:/) { print "%%BoundingBox: 0 0 $w $h\n"; print "-$x1 -$y1 translate\n"; print "$x1 $y1 moveto $x1 $y2 lineto $x2 $y2 lineto $x2 $y1 li +neto closepath\n"; print "clip\n"; $flag=1; } else { print; } }
