Printing to PostScript under Windows XP

Post by korogod » Sat Sep 17, 2005 5:08 am

NEURON -- Version 5.8 2005-5-2 13:16:27 rel5_7_159 (1) under MS Windows XP:
Printing from the PFWM to PostScript produces an empty file.

In nrn.def, the line

*pwm_postscript_filter: sed -f $N/lib/psfilt.sed

is exactly as advised in FAQ at http://www.neuron.yale.edu/neuron/faq/general-questions
but doesn't work.

Some versions have had cygwin problems with
the system("command") which is used by
the postscript print processing. Try executing
the following command from hoc to see if your
version of neuron needs to be updated.
system("pwd")
should print the current working directory if
system() is functional. If not then uninstall and
try installing
the mswin version at
