Resizes PostScript files for easier printing

Poster is a PostScript utility which resizes PS files, potentially to split them into smaller pieces that are printable on normal paper sheets (e.g., printing an A1 poster on A4 pages). It has various options for specifying input and output page size and cut margins and to select tile pages to print. It is an old utility that has been recently updated for better integration into the KDE Print Framework.
