Can files be concatenated with GhostScript? I would really like to concatenate multiple PostScript files to a single one. I have not read that that is possible, but I have read that concatenating multiple PDF files to a single PostScript file is. It failed for me, but I have high hopes. The settings I used follow (trimmed for ease of reading). Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Error was : An error occured when call to 'gsapi_init_with_args' is made: -100
but then that seems to be common to many error conditions

Thanks, Mike
