Example text

A value of 0 produces a line one pixel wide on the output device. Note that on high resolution devices, such fme lines may be difficult to see! The program starts a new path for the frame, moves to the lower left comer of the frame and draws the four lines. The box is fmished with the closepath operator and then rendered onto the page with the stroke operator. The page, with its frame, is then printed out A POSTSCRIPT COOKBOOK 36 FADED PAGE FRAME This program produces a line frame around an A4 page which fades out towards the edge of the page, stopping approximately lOmm from the edge of the sheet.

The resulting line starts at point 1, tangential to a straight line between points 1 and 2. It veers towards point 3 and finally connects with point 4, tangential to a straight line between points 3 and 4. Here are two examples. The points are labelled and the curves take the course described above. The straight lines and the circles at the junctions are for information only - they are not produced by curveto. Pointl Point3 Point 1 Point4 Point2 Point3 Point 1 A POSTSCRIPT COOKBOOK 56 CURVETOPATTERN This program produces a double looped curve which can be repeated any number of times to produce, for example, an ornate page border.

The full width of the given string is then calculated. This is used to center the text around the vertical, rather than starting at the top of the circle and rolling around to some unspecified end. The main procedure takes each character of the string in turn, moves to the edge of the circle and puts the character into a one element string. The width of this string is found and an angle calculated from the amount of the circle's circumference that the current character will cover. The graphics state is then saved.
