Want to read PostScript files into the Concordia graphic editor

    Is there any way to read a PostScript file into Concordia's graphic
    editor (i.e., for further editing)?  I'm trying to prevent the
    imposition of FrameMaker (which apparently only runs on SunView, not
    even over the X Window System) on our project.  I think I may have a
    chance by proposing standard protocols (TeX and PostScript) instead of
    "standard" tools (as if FrameMaker were an accepted standard!); but I
    may need to offer interediting capability of both text and graphics,
    hence my question.

Symbolics Concordia provides a command called Read Image File that will
extract images from a Postscript file as many other file formats (TIFF,
PICT, etc...).  The image can be edited in the Image Editor and put into
a Graphic Editor picture.

You can also use the m-X Create Picture command in Concordia and tell it
that the picture type is Postscript and then give the filename of the
Postscript file.
