\pstVerb writes PostScript code without using any PSTricks
settings. The origin in TeX is 1in 1in from the left top, but
in PS it is on the lower left.

it makes no sense usinf a pspicture environemnt when writing
\pstVerb code. to get it in the right direction you have
to put

1 -1 scale

However, usinbg \pscustom with \code makes more sense.



    1 setlinejoin
    0 0 moveto
    0 150 lineto
    150 0 lineto
    /Helvetica findfont 80 scalefont setfont
    20 0 moveto
    (ABC) false charpath}
