How to include multiple EPS in PS file?

How to include multiple EPS in PS file?

How to include multiple EPS in PS file?

(OP)
I don't know if it's possible, but I am generating postscript files and I want to include an image in the file.  Problem is, I want to include the image multiple times in the file.  Is there a way to just reference the EPS file when I need it?

Something like
...
27 31 moveto
(c:\images\image1.eps) Load
showpage
...

I don't want to actually include the eps in the ps file itself or it will get too big.

For now assume that the eps file resides in a windows based file system.

Thanks in advance

Wow cool ty.  It looks so simple now :(  I kept looking through the red book but couldn't get anything to work right using the File Operator read.  I had no idea that's what the run operator was for. Thank you again.
