>From the dvips manual page:
-x num Set the x magnification ratio to num/1000. Overrides the
magnification specified in the .dvi file. Must be between 10 and 100000.
-y num Set the y magnification ratio to num/1000. See -x above.
I can't help myself, but this I understand, that the magnification in the x or
y direction can be specified separately. And - having a buggy printer, which
is not able to print square as a square, I see good sense in specifying
different magnification in the x and y direcitions.
Perhaps, the better way I should use is the -X and -Y.
