Hello MathGroup,

In the PostScript Prolog that the program psfix puts in front of every
Mathematica PostScript file a function Mistroke is defined.

One PostScript printer failed to evaluate some Mathematica PostScript files, 
probably because of problems in executing Mistroke. After removing by hand the
Mistroke function calls from the PostScript file everything worked well.

Does anyone know what Mistroke is meant for? It appears exactly after every 50 
consecutive line drawing commands. Is it always possible to remove them 
without affecting the output?

NB. I use Mathematica Version 2.2, Sun 4
