The GPL Ghostscript PostScript interpreter

This is the free, basic and standard flavour among several Ghostscripts available for Debian. If you are not sure which version you should install, choose this.

Ghostscript is used for PostScript preview and printing. Usually as a back-end to a program such as ghostview, it can display PostScript documents in an X11 environment.

Furthermore, it can render PostScript files as graphics to be printed on non-PostScript printers. Supported printers include common dot-matrix, inkjet and laser models.

Package gsfonts contains a set of standard fonts for Ghostscript.
