"The purpose of computing is insight, not numbers." - Richard Hamming
I include this quote to indicate that I want something more than pages of output when assigning problems requiring computing. Comment on your output and on the process by which it was produced. Discuss the numerical method used in light of the output you produce. Using carefully chosen graphs is often a good means of giving additional insight.
To condense and print two postscript pages on a single regular sized sheet
of paper, use the command
psnup -pletter -nup 2 input_file.ps output_file.ps
This produces a new postscript file, and it can then be printed using your usual print command for such files.
