How To Run PST

The PST program has a command line interface, as is customary for Unix environments.

The PST program constructs a postscript file that produces a plot of the tree. The program will place the plot on as many pages as needed, including directions for how to cut and paste the pages. One can control the font size, which provides some control over the size of the plot.

To run PST, type:

pst [[-c][-f..][-s..]]* file
