SOFTWARE FOR READING IBVS
Viewing gzip-ed PostScript files
- Hints for viewing compressed PS files:
GNU zip compressed .gz files can be decompressed by gunzip.
- You might try to remove reference to .gz files
from the list of helper applications in your browser preferences
setup, and add .ps.gz ; .eps.gz to the entry for PostScript
files. Modern Unix/Linux PostScript viewers (gv, ggv, kghostview) are capable of
displaying compressed PS files.
- Access is, as a last resort, always possible with saving the file
to local disk, and doing the decompression (if necessary) by hand.
All PS files are accessible via ftp as well.
- To access the IBVS ftp site, now you need an ftp client
capable of passive mode transfer.
- Because of the spam-filtering used, to ensure that your mail
gets through, you might want to i.) register, (if you have not registered before, or your e-mail address changed)
ii.) include I.B.V.S. to the subject of the message.
