      Currently the PostScript hardcopy code is only for Unix. Although I
      heard it works with MS-Windows as well (you need to recompile with
      different features to do this). I would appreciate some Mac developers
      trying out the printing code and fixing any problems. PostScript is
      often used on the Mac, isn't it? I would expect there are only a few
      small problems to be solved.

      Sorry! A HDD crash always comes when it's most annoying...
