  1. [9fans] page and .ps bitmaps


    hi all,

    when using 'page' to look at postscript files that include bitmaps, they appear rough unless they are
    scaled 1:1 with original bitmap included within ps -- it may, however, be a problem of gs not resampling bitmaps properly:
    i am ,unfortunately, not skilled enough to find out in sources how page calls gs,
    sorry,
    would like to know where the problem is,
    thanks,

    The resizer in page(1) is fairly crude - it trades quality for speed.

    On windows and the like the resizing is often done in hardware (in the graphics card),
    unfortunaletly plan9 makes no use of such features so it has to do a pure
    software implementation - hence the tradeoff.
