The PDF output file has been created before by running another script.  
The purpose of this approach is: By the first engine creates the PDF  
file so that I can check the output. If the output is okay, I run the  
second script to print the document in duplicate: One clean version  
and one with the watermark ABSCHRIFT (German for COPY).
