I'd like to display postscript files within <iframe>'s on my html pages, pretty much exactly like I'm already doing for pdf files using https://viewerjs.org/ with a tag something like
      <iframe src="/ViewerJS/#../somefile.pdf" width=400 height=300></iframe>
Except that I want that to be somefile.ps instead of .pdf.

I know I could use ImageMagick convert somefile.ps somefile.pdf (or similar), but these postscript files are being generated in real time, and attempts using such converters actually take too long, given our requirements.

    <p>It is almost certainly not what you have in mind, but I suppose <a href="github.com/zaphod42/PostscriptJS">PostScriptJS</a> should be mentioned.</p> – Alan Aug 2 '18 at 21:42
  • @Alan Thanks. I took a look at that, but couldn't quite figure out what his Viewer.js code is doing (not too familiar with js), and his ps.html test page that uses it isn't working. I tried messing around with it a bit, but without any success. – John Forkosh Aug 3 '18 at 5:48
