  • Oddly enough, while the reference card displays nicely on my screen, it prints as a blank page. Turning on postscript error catching gives:
    ERROR: undefined
    OFFENDING COMMAND: TZ

    STACK:

    -1
    /Courier10PitchBT-Roman
    /N19
    -mark-
    I got the same results printing both both Mozilla and IE (of course, it is the Adobe plugin in both cases that is doing the printing).
    • That's not good!

      By "Adobe plugin" do you mean the embedded Adobe Acrobat Reader?

      If you're using Unix, try:
      $ ps2ps -dLanguageLevel=1 perl_test_refcard.pdf out.ps
      $ lpr -Pmyprinter out.ps

      • Yes, the embedded acrobat reader. The print dialog in Win2k for my printer (an IBM Infoprint 40 PS) offers a choice of postscript level 1, 2, and 3 - I tried all 3 and got the blank page for each. I also saved the page and used a separate invokation of Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0 (to avoid the embedded reader), but got the same result. This is at work, running Win2k - I'll try it again from home and try the ps2ps method if basic printing still fails first.
