    NCL Developers:

    Looking at the AMS requirements for figures submitted electronically, I have a
    few questions about what the .eps files that NCL outputs.

    The AMS requirements are:

    1) Figures must be in either .tiff or .eps format, with color images saved in
    CMYK mode. (RGB is acceptable, but there might be a compression of the color
    2) A resolution of 300dpi is asked for, but not necessarily required.
    3) Do not use .eps compression when saving the .eps file.

    Sylvia has provided an example on her web page concerning saving in CMYK mode.

    My questions are:
    1) I believe the default dpi of eps/ps files is 288dpi, is that correct? Is
    there anyway to change the resolution of outputted files in NCL (through
    workstation settings?)? I am guessing 288dpi will be fine, but I am curious
    about changing the resolution regardless...

    2) Does NCL compress the .eps file when it creates it?
