Forbidden Operators in EPS

Here is the list of operators which are not allowed within EPS files. The fact that none of these operators are listed in my index of operators should tell you something: they are not operators you would use very often, anyway. There is also a list of operators you can use but you should probably avoid.

Forbidden Operators
banddevice, clear, cleardictstack, copypage, erasepage, exitserver, framedevice, grestoreall, initclip, initgraphics, initmatrix, quit, renderbands, setglobal, setpagedevice, setshared, startjob
To Avoid
nulldevice, setgstate, sethalftone, setmatrix, setscreen, settransfer, undefinedfont

For more details, please see the red book.
