print pdf to pcl with gs orientation problem

(OP)
Hi,

I have a pdf-file that contains portrait and landscape-pages. I convert this to pcl so i can print them on a canon from my HP-server.

To convert the pdf to pcl i'm using ghostscript. When the ocnversion is done, everything is converted to portrait.

Can anyone help me to or tell me how to solve this problem?
Thx,

RE: print pdf to pcl with gs orientation problem

If you know which page(s) are landscape, you would insert
a landscape code immediately after the CHR$(12) or ESC+E
for the page that is to be in landscape. Perhaps an easier
way would be to insert a esc &a90P for the landscape page
then esc &a0P for the portrait page. This is a rotate command. Now it wont work on PCL 3, so probably have to
have pcl 4 or above.
