       PS_begin_page — Start a new page


       #include <pslib.h>

       void PS_begin_page(PSDoc *psdoc, float width, float height)


       Starts  a  new  page.  Though the parameters width           and height
       imply a different page size for each page,  this  is  not  possible  in
       PostScript.  The  first call of PS_begin_page(3) will set the page size
       for the whole document. Consecutive calls will have no  effect,  except
       for  creating  a  new page. The situation is different if you indent to
       convert the PostScript document into PDF. This function places pdfmarks
       into the document which can set the size for each page indiviually. The
       resulting PDF document will have different page sizes.

       Each page is encapsulated into save/restore. This means, that  most  of
       the settings made on one page will not be retained on the next page.

       If  there  is  up  to  the  first  call  of PS_begin_page(3) no call of
       PS_findfont(3), then the header of  the  PostScript  document  will  be
       output  and the bounding box will be set to the size of the first page.
       If PS_findfont(3) was called before the header has been output already,
       the  document  will  not have a valid bounding box. In order to prevent
       this,  one  should  set  the  info  field  ’BoundingBox’  and  possibly
       ‘Orientation’ before any PS_findfont(3) or PS_begin_page(3) calls.
