NAME
       fixps - sanitize PostScript files

SYNOPSIS
       fixps [OPTIONS] FILE

DESCRIPTION
       Try to fix common PostScript problems that break postprocessing.

OPTIONS
       -h, --help
              display this help and exit(3,n,1 builtins)

       -v, --version
              display version(1,3,5) information and exit(3,n,1 builtins)

       -q, --quiet
              don't print informational messages

       -o, --output=FILE
              save result in(1,8) FILE.  If FILE is `-', send(2,n) to stdout

       -f, --force
              force full rewrite by ghostscript

       -n, --no-fix
              don't fix the FILE, but still honor `-o'

       -c, --check, --dry-run
              don't perform any action

   Fixes:
              -  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/%%End-
              Setup' section - Removes  Canvas'  extraneaous  `%%EndDocument:'
              comments - Split too long lines

       If  the  FILE  seems  really in(1,8) a bad state, ghostscript may be used to
       perform a full rewrite.  The output might then be significantly bigger,
       but much safer.
