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 PostScript 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  conjunction  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 conjunction 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 assumed.

       The prefix character '_' indicates that the page number is relative to the end of the document, counting  back-
       wards. 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,  start-
       ing at one. The actual page number in the document may be different.
