The original question:

>Anyone know of a product that allows you to load/edit/save PostScript pictures on X.
>The need is for PostScript element editor not a bitmap type editor that loads PostScript.

I need confirmations about: Adobe Illustrator on Sun?, Island Draw?,
                            PostScript debugger develped in UCB, called 'dbps'?

The answers:

I only received three "good" answers. All others related to Opwnwin pageview using the
Xnews server which serves only the Sun local screen and anyway is not an editor.

  There seems to be a PostScript debugger develped in UCB, called
  'dbps' . I have a technical report from berkeley describing it but
  didn't succeed in laying my hands on it (tried to email the guy on the
  report twice).

>From Anthony A. Datri <>
   The only real product like this that I know about is Adobe Illustrator,
   which only runs (as far as I know) on peecees and macintoshses.

>From Patrick Shopbell <>
   I have heard that Island Draw does some of this editing
   of PostScript files. I believe it costs $.
