It would be nice to have an option, or perhaps a "device" that simply reports the number of pages. I have
read the posts and suggestions in comp.lang.postscript and done my own experiments and the most
reliable way to get an accurate page count is to convert to pdf and then back to postscript, but this is
SLOW. I would think that it would be fairly easy to add a feature to simply give a page count instead of
rendering any pages.
Why is this important to me? I need to count the number of pages for each postscript job submitted to a
printing accounting system, and the ps->pdf->ps method is just to slow.
