pdf output

5 0 obj

endobj

to

5 0 obj
<< /Length 1239 >>
endobj

then both gv and acroread can process the file without error.

Putting the length of a stream in an indirect object is allowed by the
PDF spec, and specifically mentioned as an example of how you can write
a pdf file in one pass. Does the latest svn version (which has the
bugfix by Michael) not work for you?

Has anyone worked with postscript files on windows? I don’t know if this is related, but when I do a savefig(‘foo.ps’,dpi=150) on plot generated by pcolormesh, I find that ghostview gives the error:

"
DSC Error at line 518:
%%Page: 1 1
This %%Page: line occured in the trailer, which is not legal.
EPS files should be encapsulated in %%BeginDocument/%%EndDocument
It is possible that an EPS file was incorrectly encapsulated

and that we have been confused by the %%Trailer in an EPS file."

This was running with the latest version from SVN. I looked in the file and could not find a BeginDocument error.

Thanks,
William
