Re: Proposal: psutils (again)

Just one remark: the source package contains the patch at its root and not in CYGWIN-PATCHES where, AFAIK, it's supposed to be (for packages not using build scripts) says the patch sould be top-level (but optionally in CYGWIN-PATCHES).

Other than that, I've tried out the tools in the ISO-C99 specification (nice
& big file) and found no problems :)




BTW: wouldn't it be a better idea to just add a Makefile.cygwin file? That way,
the same source pack can still be used on other OSs as well.. (Just a thought)

Hi *,

as seen at

the psutils disappeared from the TeX-distribution and are AFAICS not yet a seperate package. The unsupported packages on Jan's site seem to be lost as well, so I compiled it from source and would (enough votes presumed) become the maintainer of the Cygwin port.

I really hope I didn't miss something, because the net is full of unsupported binary versions (even some with a setup-hint), but it doe not seem to have ever made it into the distro.

So I'll try like so many before. Here we go:

@ psutils
sdesc: "psutils - Postscript Utilities"
ldesc: "PSUtils is a collection of useful utilities for manipulating PostScript documents. Programs included are psnup, for placing out several logical pages on a single sheet of paper, psselect, for selecting pages from a document, pstops, for general imposition, psbook, for signature generation for booklet printing, and psresize, for adjusting page sizes."
category: Publishing
test: 1.17-1

No dependencies known. The archives are here: (54k) (64k)
