|Summary||0001508: Erroneous Postscipr file for inputs with multiple graphs|
The problem occurs when the input file contains more than one digraph.
I use the following command line:
dot -Tps reverse.dt -o reverse.ps
When I open the resulting Poscript file a dialog box pops up containing the following message:
Document Structuring Convention
EPS file may have 0 or 1 pages. This 'EPS' file has
more than this and is not an EPS file.
Then, when I try flipping after the first page, the display only shows the
first graph (which is rendered correctly).
Curiously, a similar error, for multiple graph input files, was once reported and fixed.
This is not a document feature but we've been using it for quite a number of years in the TVLA system.
My interpretation of this is that your PostScript viewer is strictly enforcing the EPS standard, which says:
> An encapsulated PostScript file is a PostScript language program describing
> the appearance of a single page.
I would be curious if your current PostScript viewer is able to display the output from an earlier version of dot containing
multiple graphs. If it can, please send me the PostScript file. I would like to see how it fools the viewer.
By the way, as of April 2008, we recognized that output using -Tps was not strict EPS, even without multiple graphs.
At that time, we added -Teps to produce correct EPS output, but this still assumes the input only contains one graph.
I believe you are going to need a viewer allowing multiple pages.
