[pstricks] Code doesnt compile

It compiles fine on my machine.  What kind of operating system are you using?

My TeXing began with Unix, so I use Linux, and when I need to use Windows, I try to use a command line C:> to do the commands I could use in Linux.  Like Jürgen mentioned, be sure you are using LaTeX and not PDFLaTeX directly.

C:> latex file.tex               'produces a .dvi file from your code
C:> dvips -o file.ps file.dvi    'makes a .ps file from .dvi file (need Ghostscript/GS I think)
C:> ps2pdf file.ps file.pdf      'makes a .pdf file from .ps file.  (file.pdf is default and can be omitted, or can be changed to something else)

The commands are the same in Linux.  You have to have all the packages.  Texnikcenter has a couple problems with such things.
