Subject:Distributing Postcript Files for Viewing From:Michael Andrew Uhl <uhl -at- VISLAB -dot- EPA -dot- GOV> Date:Mon, 4 Mar 1996 16:24:58 -0800
It has been suggested to me that I could save my FrameMaker files
as PostScript files, as one would do to send them to a service
bureau, and give our customer this PostScript file with the hope
that they can use a freeware PostScript viewer program to look at
Is this a plausible approach? Have any of you ever distibuted
PostScript files to a customer for them to view? Do freeware
PostScript viewers exist? If so, please name one and let me know
where andhow I might get a copy.
Thank you for any help you can provide.
