Got it, thanks.

Actually, what I had in mind was something more like this:


To try it:

	make test1.ps
	gs -- test1.ps

and likewise for test2.ps.  This is for Unix (sorry).

Of course, in test1 the perl script is something you'd (I believe) like
to avoid having the user run (so my example doesn't work either, but if
one had a working example, then there would be no request to modify dvips).

I don't understand, though, why test2 doesn't work.  Anyone have any
