Thank you for your reply. Respectfully, I am a user of gl2ps, and I do want to be able to use it to write deterministic postscript output. I do think the current behavior should be the default, I am only asking for an option to create an output with a known timestamp. If this is not done in gl2ps, then my workarounds include embedding a patched version of gl2ps.c, using faketime, or post-processing the .ps files to edit the timestamp strings. None of these are particularly appealing options. My original report may have sounded like a "why not?" request. So just to be clear, I do have a real need for gl2ps to produce postscript files that are deterministic. Cheers, -- mike
