What I'm seeing when I open the file is that there is megabytes of image
data at the start of the file before the page layout actually begins. The
book has a healthy number of figures in it, you see. If I were to hand-split
the file, I'd end up with vast quantities of unused image data in each
resulting document. Now, I assume this won't do any harm to the printed
output, but it'll mean pushing around some unnecessarily large files.
Thanks for the instructions anyway -- if I'm in a hurry or if I can't find a
tool that manipulates the Postscript cleanly, it's good to have a simple
