The free Acumen Journal presents two monthly articles by John Deubert of Acumen Training, one
— ‘The Acrobat User‘ — featuring advanced uses of
Adobe Acrobat, and the second — ‘PostScript Tech‘ —
covering some aspect of PostScript programming.
For April 2005, the technical features are:
- The Acrobat User: ‘Image Resampling in Acrobat Distiller’
Distiller and many other programs that create PDF files allow you to
resample the images placed in that file. Most people are vague about
what resampling is and how it differs from compression.
- PostScript Tech: ‘Handling PostScript Errors, Part 1’
The default PostScript error handler typically sends the name of the
error and the offending command to the output stream. This month and
next, Deubert shows how to write an own error handler to report on
additional information and print the message to the current page.
