Yes indeed... For a unix Front End a PostScript image can be obtained as follows: Display["!psfix -epsf > file.eps", mathematica_graphics]. Say, In[1] := graph = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 3 Pi//N}] In[2] := Display["!psfix -epsf > sin.eps", graph] Cheers Vicki >This works well on a Macintosh Front End. >How do you do this on a unix FrontEnd like a Silicon Graphics or a Sun? >Thanks >Elias Saab > > >On Mon, 29 Jul 1996, Victoria Steblina wrote: > >> waldby at glhpx11.cen.uiuc.edu (waldby julian f) wrote: ........................................... >> >Is there another way to get a full Postscript description of a plot? >> >Or is there a better way to include the PS.TXT file? >> >> This works for me: >> >> 1.
