GSView is a graphical interface for Ghostscript under Windows, OS/2 or Unix-alike systems (RPM distributions are available). Ghostscript is an interpreter for the PostScript page description language used by laser printers. For documents following the Adobe PostScript Document Structuring Conventions, GSview allows selected pages to be viewed or printed. Various conversions can also be performed, including ps to pdf, pdf to ps, eps to pdf, and eps to jpg. GSview was inspired by Tim Theisen’s X11 Ghostview program (the current X11 derivative of that is gv). GSview is designed to work with AFPL Ghostscript (versions 7.04-9.99), not GNU Ghostscript.
Ghostview may be registered as if shareware, but there is no requirement to do so (though there is a “nag window” that bothers users of unregistered copies).
