Re: Framers-Digest #900 - 06/08/98

There was a framer's digest awhile back addressing this issue.
Check the archives.

1. Create a file (VirMem.txt) with the following:  

% This file allocates xx MB of VM, expanding the available VM for the
% Distiller Interpreter.  This file could be placed in the Distiller
% StartUp folder (Dir), Run as a StandAlone job, or inserted at the
% beginning of a job - to avoid problems with PostScript code that
% checks VM (Win 95 - not necessary for Win NT).
% Specifies # of MB of VM allocated at startup
/MB 12 def
% PS code allocates EXpanded VM
/MB MB 32 mul def
/myarray MB array def
/MB MB 1 sub def
0 1 MB {myarray exch 32768 string put} for
currentdict /myarray undef
currentdict /MB undef

2. Save it as a postcript file (virmem.ps) in the Distiller\Startup

Subject: Low Printer VM message distilling Frame 5.5 books
From: damienkurrin@cybertek.com
Date: Mon, 08 Jun 98 09:47:28 -0500

This may have been asked before, but we have some rather large books
that we turn into PDF files. Since we upgraded to Frame 5.5, we get
the following message from Acrobat Distiller when we attempt to 
distill some of the larger books:
     %%[ PrinterError: Low Printer VM ]%%
     %%[ Flushing: rest of job (to end-of-file) will be ignored ]%%
     %%[ Warning: PostScript error. No PDF file produced. ] %%
We split the books up as much as possible, but some of the books 
really need to stay in one piece.  <<<
