     The attached StuffIt Deluxe archive contains version 1.1.3 of
Drop*PS, the PostScript(tm) file downloader from Bare Bones Software. This
updated version corrects a bug which would render Drop*PS unable to see
network printers on multi-zone networks. Drop*PS provides the ability to
download PostScript or EPS files to any network-connected PostScript
printer. ...

     Postman 1.1 - Postman is your basic drag-and-drop Postscript
downloader utility but with a few important bells and whistles. It batch
downloads any combination of Postscript text and EPS files to your 
Chooser-selected Postscript printer. In addition, you can call it to
selectively download or remove fonts, apply standard "Page SetupŠ"
transformations like flipping and inverting the  page, centre the
imageable area and print multiple copies or particular pages within the
Postscript file. Postman also summarises important details such as
image size, number of pages  and font usage for you. Postman is small,
fast, smart and cheap!
