We are currently using GCG version 6.2.

The PostScript files generated with the /psinclude option do not contain
the command "showpage".

If you want to print the postscript file out using a generic spooling
environment append a showpage at the end of the file.

NOTE.  If you are going to try to include the postscript in another document
you may also run into problems with the "initgraphics" operator used during
initialization.  The banner doesn't claim that the PostScript is actually 
EPS so wisc can't really be blamed.  So far we have been able to 
successfully include dotplot and pepplot output in LaTeX documents without
much trouble.
