Luis, Teresa,

You can now create an EPS file directly from GrADS, without having to first create a metafile,

'print -c -o out.eps'

This form of the print command accepts most of the options that gxeps accepts, and has been available in GrADS for a year or two (I'm not sure since what version).

Hi Luis,

the problem could be the path of gxeps command.

I use this:

.. display graphics ...
'enable print out.mf'
'disable print'
'!/usr/local/bin/gxeps -c -i out.mf -o file.ps'
'!rm out.mf'
'!mv file.ps 'dirout

good lucky ;)
