	I cannot answer your question, but perhaps you can answer mine.
I have a client/server application which requires me to send one page of
postscript information from a client (VAX running VMS (ugh)) to a server
on an HP-UNIX server running ghostscript.

	I don't know how from the server side to tell ghostscript to
release the image that I have sent it, so that I can send a new one. (If
interactive, it expects a break ^c command followed by quit. That will
work, but is slow. Do you know of a driver that will do the job faster?
