- Remove junk before and after PostScript content - Use only Unix end of lines (\n) - Remove empty lines - Fix Apple prologue (fixmacps) - Fix FrameMaker prologue (fixfmps) - Fix CorelDraw prologue (fixnt) - Fix Windows NT 3.5/4.0 prologue (fixnt) - Fix Windows 95 prologue - Ensure there is a ‘%%BeginSetup/%%EndSetup’ section - Removes Canvas’ extraneaous ‘%%EndDocument:’ comments - Split too long lines
If the FILE seems really in a bad state, ghostscript may be used to perform a full rewrite. The output might then be significantly bigger, but much safer.
