PostScript

FilledSmallSquare PostScript["string"] is a graphics primitive which gives PostScript code to include verbatim in graphics output.

FilledSmallSquare Mathematica by default renders a point with coordinates 0 0 in the PostScript code at the bottom left-hand corner of your plot, and a point with coordinates 1 r at the top right-hand corner, where r is the aspect ratio of the whole plot.

FilledSmallSquare You can specify a bounding box for the objects represented by your PostScript code by including a standard conforming PostScript comment of the form %%BoundingBox pxmin pymin pxmax pymax.

FilledSmallSquare PostScript["string", xmin, ymin, xmax, ymax] then renders the point with coordinates pxmin pymin in the PostScript code at position xmin, ymin in the Mathematica graphic, and the point with coordinates pxmax pymax at position xmax, ymax.

FilledSmallSquare Mathematica will transform graphics represented by a PostScript command to make it fill the specified rectangle.

FilledSmallSquare After execution of PostScript code included by the PostScript command, all PostScript stacks must be restored to their original states.

FilledSmallSquare The utility of the PostScript command depends on your PostScript interpreter's ability to process the PostScript commands you specify.

FilledSmallSquare Display may or may not convert graphics produced by PostScript commands to other formats.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 2.10.14.
