Printing PostScript files.

Once you have made your most beautiful plot, you wanna have it on a PS file to show
it to all the other people. You just have to specify that the output for the next window is actually a file:

        IDL>  set_plot,'ps'

Then redo all you need to do your very nice plot (if there is a lot of commands,
prefer the use of a bach or program or journal).
You can customize the output (landscape/portrait, ps/eps, using the device command)
When finished, close the ps_file and return to X-window plots:

        IDL>  device,/close
        IDL>  set_plot,'x'
