When converting postscript files to PDF files, it is
nice to get the
document info in the PDF file.
I have created a lpd printer on a Linux server that
reads ps files
and creates pdf files. For this I use a small filter
script to
collect info and to output it to ps2pdf. Maybee this
could
be usefull for others..

    It partially does this. If the file uses a /DOCINFO pdfmark (I
    think) it can insert stuff explicity. Ghostscript also scans the
    DSC comments for some document info, but there is a bug
    that prevents it doing this reliably.
