   Does anyone know how I can get a screen image off the Symbolics and into
   a Macintosh file which is readable by MacDraw.  I have been trying to
   understand Apple's PICT format but am not quite into reading hex.

   I got the screen array from tv:main-screen and transferred that over to
   the Mac with no problem.  Then the fun began.  A friend of mine started
   trying to teach me all about traps, scraps, and op codes.  I did not get
   it.  I then remembered some talk long ago about moving files between the
   Symbolics and the Mac.  I was wondering if someone has already done



How about writing the symbolics screen into a postscript file, I'm sure
that must be some postscript ==> macdraw program (or perhaps macdraw can
read postscript files).
