beginps [nosvg]

postscript PostScript code

ps PostScript code

Default Command line Scope Available in

The command %%beginps introduces a PostScript sequence that ends with %%endps and which will be included in the PostScript output file.

This parameter may be used to override any PostScript function or to define new functions for use in %%deco.

When the output file format is SVG (command options '-g', '-v' or '-X'), the PostScript code is executed by a small internal PS interpreter.
Sequences which cannot be executed (as font redefinitions) must be skipped checking the presence of the symbol 'svg':

/svg where {pop} {
.. PostScript code which cannot be executed by the internal PS interpreter ..
} ifelse
When the option nosvg is present, the sequence is not executed on SVG output.

When a single PostScript line must be inserted, abcm2ps accepts the commands %%postscript or %%ps.
