Book Description – Postscript Language Reference

Download Postscript Language Reference pdf- For page description, the PostScript language is widely accepted as the industry standard. PostScript is a language that defines how text, sampled pictures, and graphics will look on a printed page or on a computer screen. It is used by a wide range of printers, imagesetters, and computer displays. The Red Book, often known as the PostScript Language Reference, is the comprehensive and definitive reference handbook for the PostScript language. It specifies the syntax and semantics of the language, the Adobe image model, and the effects of the graphics operators and was prepared by Adobe Systems Incorporated, the authors and guardians of the PostScript standard.

LanguageLevel 3 extensions, which unify a lot of prior extensions and bring many new features, such as high-fidelity color, support for masked pictures, and smooth shading capabilities, have been included in this Third Edition.
