NAME

PS_begin_page — Start a new page

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

#include <pslib.h>

void PS_begin_page(PSDoc *psdoc, float width, float height)

DESCRIPTION

Starts a new page. Though the parameters width           and height imply a different page size for each
                        page, this is not possible in PostScript. The first call of
                        PS_begin_page(3) will set
                        the page size for the whole document. Consecutive calls will have no
                        effect, except for creating a new page. The situation is different
                        if you indent to convert the PostScript document into PDF. This function
                        places pdfmarks into the document which can set the size for each page
                        indiviually. The resulting PDF document will have different page sizes.
                        

Each page is encapsulated into save/restore. This means, that most
                 of the settings made on one page will not be retained on the next page.
                        

If there is up to the first call of PS_begin_page(3) no call of
                 PS_findfont(3), then the header of the PostScript document will be
                        output and the bounding box will be set to the size of the first page.
                        If PS_findfont(3) was called before the header has been output already,
                        the document will not have a valid bounding box. In order to prevent
                        this, one should set the info field ’BoundingBox’ and possibly
                        ‘Orientation’ before any PS_findfont(3) or PS_begin_page(3) calls.
