[tex-k] dvips premature end of file in binary section
Thu, 01 Feb 2001 11:10:59 +0100
we've had trouble with the adobe-photoshop--eps inclusion problem.
I don't know if it is a solved problem (apart from -K): I didn't
get much help from web searches.
Anyway, we understand it (and solve it) this way:
1. it's a problem with %%BeginBinary/CRLF: photoshop saves the
binary length counting 2 bytes per end-of-line; somewhere (perhaps
while moving files between shared resources) the EOL are converted
from dos to unix, CRLF->LF. Of course, the %%BeginBinary comment
is not updated to reflect the change and dvips finds that he lacks
2. as a workaround, we now convert the eols back to dos in the figures
that crash, so that the binary length in the comment matches the actual
length. We didn't want to use -K and this works pretty well
---as a side note, I personally find it awkward to count 2 bytes for eol
in a *text* file, even for an ms-dos application.
