TeX-psfig problem


You may be having problems with a huge amount of font data being left
in your Postscript file. The Psfig distribution comes with a script
for UNIX awk which removes it:

#tsilva at sparky> cat /loc/lib/psfig/stripfonts.awk
BEGIN {p = 1}
$1 == "%%BeginFont:" { p = 0 }
{ if (p==1) print $0 }
$1 == "%%EndFont" { print "bn"; p = 1 }
$1 == "%%EndFont:" { print "bn"; p = 1 }

Preprocess your Postscript with the awk script and try reprinting your
TeX document. I seem to recall awk having a line length restriction,
so you may have to use UNIX fold as well:

fold -2500 < oldfig.ps | awk -f /loc/lib/psfig/stripfonts.awk > newfig.ps
