Postscript tutorial and reference

Ian Utting

Technical Report 11-92*, University of Kent, Computing Laboratory, University of Kent, Canterbury, UK, June 1992.


PostScript is the de facto standard Page Description Language produced by Adobe Systems Corporation and supported as a printer interface language by many manufacturers of laser printers and phototypesetters. This document provides an illustrated introduction to the major features of the language, it should contain enough information to enable potential users of PostScript to determine how much effort is required to perform a task they have in mind, and for some purposes it will serve as a programmer's guide to the language. It will never replace the Adobe Systems books, but then it's nowhere near as expensive.
