Re: [ldm-users] Printing from Gempak

The postscript driver in gempak rounds up to the following sizes:
Roll2: 42.5 x 32.5"
Roll1: 32.5 x 20.5"
Tabloid: 17 x 11"
Letter: 11 x 8.5"

These are defined in

It isn't hard to add other sizes to these routines.
I needed a custom size once and modified the code.  I
still don't know why someone went
to the trouble of limiting the choice of sizes.  The pixel
drivers all let you make an image any size you wish.
