Starting with test1.tex and figure.ps, one does:

	perl fixeps.pl < figure.ps > figure.pro
	tex test1
	dvips -o test1.ps test1

and, likewise for test2:

	perl fix2.pl < figure.ps > figure.pr2
	tex test2
	dvips -o test2.ps test2


Both tests also work with xdvi.


There's a third omission that I just remembered.  If figure.ps contains
a line "*EOD*" then there are problems.  The script will have to scan the
input file for EOD-like lines to find an EOD marker that does not occur
in the file.
