Probably another one of those newbie questions..

Probably another one of those newbie questions..

Probably another one of those newbie questions..

I will be the first to admit I know literally nothing about postscript... (yet I've made changes in the past)

We have been selling a brand of printers for years.. They have decided they are withdrawing from our country so we have chosen HP as a replacement..

Everything except Tray selection seems to work...

I'm making the assumption this is sort of a function

the old code looks like this.

/Pagedv exch def
<<currentpagedevice /InputAttributes get Pagedv get {}forall /InputAttributes << /Priority [Pagedv] >> >> setpagedevice
} bind def

The PPD says this should be <</MediaPosition [Pagedv] /ManualFeed false>> setpagedevice

So the questions are what is a the get{} and forall doing (is that a loop)


I've created a little test but It's not working quite the way I expected..

Tell me I've got something out of sequence.. or out of position..

In advance I thank you.. (not sure how many of you have had a lousy 2020 I know I have but I just feel it's got to get better)
