When Steve Jobs left Apple and started NeXT, he pitched Adobe on the idea of using PS as the display system for his new workstation computers. The result was Display PostScript, or DPS. DPS added basic functionality to improve performance by changing many string lookups into 32 bit integers, adding support for direct output with every command, and adding functions to allow the GUI to inspect the ed by: John Warnock, Chuck Geschke.

Display PostScript (or DPS) is a 2D graphics engine system for computers which uses the PostScript (PS) imaging model and language (originally developed for computer printing) to generate on-screen graphics.

To the basic PS system, DPS adds a number of features intended to ease working with bitmapped displays. Audible free book: PostScript is more than just a 2D graphics language, it's a fully operational programming language. Like other computer languages, PostScript supports different types of data, such as numbers, arrays, and strings.

A PostScript program can have loops, conditionals, and procedures. The language resembles the programming language Forth somewhat. The syntax of the language is described in the so-called Red Book which can be found here.

As with.1 Introduction to the Display PostScript System. To display or print graphics, an application must have an imaging model, a set of rules for describing pictures and NeXT also developed a Display PostScript system in cooperation with Adobe in PostScript as a Programming Language PostScript has all the programming functionality you would expect from an HP-caclulator, plus some interesting features hard to find in other languages.

There are variables, loops, subroutines (of a sort), and an advanced idea for the scope of variables.
