Hi everyone!

I guess some combination of those tools should actually be able to
achieve the desired effect.  But rather than figuring out all the
details on how to do it, it's probably easier to just wrap a few direct
"scale"/"rotate"/"translate" PostScript commands around the final PS
file... (With those, you can achieve _any_ linear geometrical
transformation of the page to be printed.)

I've done quite a bit of low-level PostScript programming, so if you
like, I could put together a little Perl script to edit your PS files
as needed...
Feel free to send me your example PS output off-list (preferably .eps,
but a normal .ps should work, too), and I'll give it a go :)

Would that help?
