16. PostScript

Chapter 16. PostScript

PostScript is a concatenative programming language most commonly used to describe documents for desktop and electronic publishing. John Warnock and Charles Geschke invented the language after founding Adobe Systems in 1982. Apple’s LaserWriter shipped with PostScript in 1985, making desktop publishing possible. PostScript quickly became the de facto standard for document interchange. Since then, its successor PDF has supplanted PostScript in that realm.
