I am hoping the members of this group can help out with a postscript newbie question.
I have a need (for reasons too hilarious to go into here) to post-process Postscript output files from a certain application before they go to print. What I need to do is find a certain byte value (0xBA) and change it to print as a Registered Trademark symbol. I think the best way to do this is to insert an escape sequence into the operand for the ( ) show command such that the magic byte becomes a 'registered.'
I am having the devil's own time finding the right reference to how this would be constructed.
As a follow-up question, since I obviously need it, where o where is a decent online PS tutorial???
So, to clarify. What I am looking for is how to insert a character from the font BY NAME into an otherwise literal string, because the desired character happens not to be in the symbol set selected.
I am experimenting with the glyphshow operator but it does not seem to work or play well with Distiller so far (I have 5.0).
