Hi Lu,

which version of GSview are you using? I just tested it with 4.4 (output
from EMBOSS2.8.0).
GSview also complains (correctly) about the second page but it can also
show this page with the hydropathy plots.
1) tell pepinfo to produce only one graph
2) open with a text editor and remove the line with the bounding
box definition.

Hope this helps,

When I use pepinfo as following:
pepinfo -inseq PCNA.fasta -graph ps -outfile pepinfo.out is created. However, the two-page graph output could not be
showed in GSView. Error is listed as:
DSC Error
EPS files may have 0 or 1 pages. This 'EPS' file has
more than this and so is not an EPS file.
You cannot use 'Print To' ‘Encapsulated PostScriptFile' for
print multipage files. The correct method is to connect
the printer to FILE: or to select 'Print to File'.

Could anyone tell me how to process this error, and thus see the 2nd page
in the
