The PostScript Language Reference Manual, contains the complete semantics of every PostScript language operator, the Display PostScript System, PostScript Level 1 (the original PostScript language), and PostScript Level 2, the first major revision to the language since its release in 1985. PostScript Level 2 incorporates recent extensions to the language and many new features including:

  • Support for printer-specific features
  • Device-independent, CIE-based color
  • Optimized text and graphics operators


As PostScript continues to be the industry standard page description language for imaging high-quality text and graphics, the PostScript Language Reference Manual, remains the definitive resource for all PostScript language programmers.
