Hello David:

    Curiously enough Pdf995 is basically just a front end to Ghostscript.
Pdf995 sets itself up as another printer in one's list of printers. It also
comes with a second freeware/nagware program that remembers and passes
configuration parameters to Ghostscript when it is invoked.

Thanks, Ed Kennedy
