11 Is there a utility to preview postscript files on the Mac? (Miscellaneous Macintosh)

Net godhood awaits the first person to write a working shareware
or freeware PostScript previewer for the Mac. The payware product
TScript allows viewing PostScript files on the Mac, but this is a
large package with other purposes and even the light version costs
over $100. Aladdin Enterprises' GhostView can preview some PostScript
files, but tends to crash. Be sure to save your work before launching
it. See

Adobe's Acrobat Distiller (part of Adobe Illustrator and
Acrobat Pro) can convert most PostScript files into PDF files
you can view with Acrobat Reader or Illustrator. See
