I have a file with a 'PS' extension, that I'm desparately trying to open. One of the first lines reads "PS-Adobe-2.0". How can I view it under windows?

Many thanks, bosism@netvision.net.il

Hi Matvey,

Well, have to go with the Blackman here if you download Ghostscript you get some insights to the source code too so you can write your own Ghostscript editor :O)

Thanks. I'm not sure my HP DeskJet 690 is a postscript printer (correct me if I'm wrong). I managed to view the file in GhostScript viewer, but have troubles printing it. I tried to install also "Adobe Post Script 4", but it's list does not contain my printer either. Is there any way I could print it somehow? Some old Adobe Acrobat I have prints well PDF file on it...

Hi Matvey,

Couldn't find it on the HP site, so back to Ghostscript and think you should look here http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/aladdin/doc/Devices.htm

Hope this helps

Ahhmm, I don't know what it was... all sorts of errors: weird shapes, black continuous bars at the end, etc. I'm happy it works fine now, and that's all I wanted. I got to view the file, and even to print it in the end without doing anything special, so at this stage it's more than enough :)

Thank you all, and the first to suggest this, Black, please put an end to this thread...

Nice seeing you, and a happy new year!
