    Re: Postscript code for making Bygrave Scales

    > For development and tweaking I find it faster and more convenient to read the data from an external file. This works fine on my Windows XP computer but so far I haven’t been able to get it to work under Windows 8.1.

    What program is used to interpret postscript on Windows 8.1?
    And while we are at it, what program do you use on your Windows XP?

    Most postscript viewer programs have "safer mode" to interpret postscript from untrusted source. This mode, among other things, prohibits access to file system.
