This software is part of the GNU Project.

Ghostscript is an interpreter for the PostScript language. A PostScript interpreter usually takes as input a set of graphics commands. The output is usually a page bitmap which is then sent to an output device such as a printer or display. PostScript is embedded in many printers.

The project need to add an interface for Emacs to talk to so it can efficiently use one Ghostscript process to display a series of images, and output them into pixmaps specificed by Emacs. If you can help in this way contact Didier Please !
