These Postscript files are meant to be printed on legal sized paper
which is is about 14 inches long.  To reduce them so that they can be
printed on A4 paper, load the Postscript files as plain text into your 
favourite editor.

Find the line with ...
/fs 7 def     
Change the number to 6.3

The find the line with

/vtop 72 13.35 mul def 

and replace the 13.35 with 11.5

If you do this editing in a word processor, make sure that you
save it as a plain text file.  The numbers in these two lines
may not be exactly the same for all of the Postscript files.
I've only looked at a couple of them.  Whatever they are,
reduce them to make come out smaller.

If you use vi, then the following two commands should work ...

:1,$s/\/fs 7 def/\/fs 6.30 def/
:1,$s/^\/vtop 72 13.35 mul def$/\/vtop 72 13.35 mul/
