NAME         top

       cupstestdsc - test conformance of postscript files (deprecated)

SYNOPSIS         top

       cupstestdsc [ -h ] [ ... ]
       cupstestdsc [ -h ] -

DESCRIPTION         top

       cupstestdsc tests the conformance of PostScript files to the Adobe
       PostScript Language Document Structuring Conventions Specification
       version 3.0.  The results of testing and any other output are sent to
       the standard output.  The second form of the command reads PostScript
       from the standard input.

NOTES         top

       This program is deprecated and will be removed in a future release of

       cupstestdsc only validates the DSC comments in a PostScript file and
       does not attempt to validate the PostScript code itself.  Developers
       must ensure that the PostScript they generate follows the rules
       defined by Adobe.  Specifically, all pages must be independent of
       each other, code outside page descriptions may not affect the
       graphics state (current font, color, transform matrix, etc.), and
       device-specific commands such as setpagedevice should not be used.
