NAME
       psselect	- select pages from a PostScript file

SYNOPSIS
       psselect	 [  -q ] [ -e ]	[ -o ] [ -r ] [	-ppages	] [ pages ] [ infile [
       outfile ] ]

DESCRIPTION
       Psselect	selects	pages from a PostScript	document, creating a new Post-
       Script file. The	input PostScript file should follow the	Adobe Document
       Structuring Conventions.

       The -e option selects all of the	even pages; it may be used in conjunc-
       tion  with  the	other  page selection options to select	the even pages
       from a range of pages.

       The -o option selects all of the	odd pages; it may be used in  conjunc-
       tion with the other page	selection options.

       The -ppages option specifies the	pages which are	to be selected.	 Pages
       is a comma separated list of page ranges, each of which may be  a  page
       number,	or  a  page range of the form first-last. If first is omitted,
       the first page is assumed, and if last is omitted, the last page	is as-
       sumed.

       The  prefix character `_' indicates that	the page number	is relative to
       the end of the document,	counting backwards.  If	 just  this  character
       with no page number is used, a blank page will be inserted.

       The  -r	option causes psselect to output the selected pages in reverse
       order.

       Psselect	normally prints	the page numbers of the	pages rearranged;  the
       -q option suppresses this.

       If  any of the -r, -e, or -o options are	specified, the page range must
       be given	with the -p option. This is for	backwards  compatibility  with
       previous	versions.

NOTES
       The  page  number  given	to psselect is the number of the page counting
       from the	start or end of	the file, starting at  one.  The  actual  page
       number in the document may be different.
