I had a similar need for viewing postscript documents. I needed to view
docs that had been sent to me, and I wanted to view my own postscript
files prior to sending them to my print vendor.

I searched the web and found Gsview, a graphical interface for
Ghostscript. Ghostscript is an interpreter for the PostScript page
description language used by laser printers. Following the instructions
on the Gsview web site, I downloaded the software needed for my system.
Here is the web Gsview web site address:

Good luck.
