It isn't pretty, but it works: To print postscript files from Mathematica ------------------------------------------ 1. Highlight the cell containing the graphic output. 2. Graph -> Convert Selected Graphic -> Convert to Postscript 3. Style-> Attributes -> Formatted (warning - this produces a _big_ text cell) 4. Save As Special -> Plain Text (creates a text file) 5. Edit the file you just saved to include only the "PS-like" commands: - the beginning of the file should look like: %! %%Creator: Mathematica %%AspectRatio: 1 MathPictureStart %% Graphics .... .... [ bunch of stuff ] .... .... - the end should have: % End of Graphics MathPictureEnd 6. Run psfix (mine is in /usr/local/math/Bin/Display/psfix) on the file: psfix file > file2 7. file2 is a postscript file you can print,include in other programs, e.g. with "lp -opostscript file2", or similar... Good luck - I'm using ver 2.2 on a HP 9000/735 running HP-UX 9.01.
