There's a freeware PostScript manipulator (GhostScript) and viewer
(GhostView) for the PC available at:

There are several flavours, depending on which OS you prefer. Even though I
have a PostScript printer, I use this to preview WP5.1 for DOS documents set
up for my client's printer. I can also print through the Windows print manager.
