Nancy Kaminski wondered how to read a postscript file in
the absence of a postscript printer. Arlen has already
mentioned the utility "Ghostscript", which is available on
the Web, but you may have another alternative handy if your
company does online docs: Do you have access to a copy of
Acrobat Distiller? If so, you can distill the file into
PDF, open it for reading with Acrobat reader, or print it
to any printer (including non-postscript). Could work well,
particularly since you should be able to copy text out of
the PDF and right into your wordprocessor.
