GSview : A Tool To Convert PS Files to PDF Files.

GSview is a graphical interface for Ghostscript. Ghostscript is an interpreter for the PostScript page description language used by laser printers. For documents following the Adobe PostScript Document Structuring Conventions, GSview allows selected pages to be viewed or printed. GSview requires Ghostscript. GSview is available for Windows, OS/2 and Linux.

GSview was written by Russell Lang at Ghostgum Software Pty Ltd. Ghostscript was originally written by Aladdin Enterprises and is now maintained by Artifex Software, Inc.

How to convert PS to PDF?
1. Open a PS Viewer / Browser (Here, we take GSView as an example)

2. Open a PS (Post Script) document

3. Select from main menu "File"->"Print"

4. Select Printer "Virtual PDF Printer"

5. If you need to adjust PDF generation options, click the "Property" button on the right
