HARDCOPY /FITPAGE

        HARDCOPY /FITPAGE

    Automatically rotate and scale the desired part of the plot to match  at
    best the hardcopy physical size. Alternatively, the variable GTV%FITPAGE
    can be set to YES to force this feature.

    The desired part of the plot is the full Greg plot page for PS,  or  the
    cropped plot for EPS. The hardcopy physical page is controled by the sic
    logical GAG_PAPER_SIZE set at compilation time.

    In the case of PS/EPS hardcopies, if the plot actually  needs  rotation,
    the  line  "%%Orientation:  Landscape"  or  "%%Orientation: Portrait" is
    added in the PostScript header. This line is  recognized  by  PostScript
    viewers  (e.g. ghostview) so that they unrotate the file when displaying
    it. On the other hand, empirical tests show that  Latex,  MS/Open/Libre-
    Office, or eps2jpg ignore it. Hopefully, printers also ignore this line,
    giving this option its full sense.
