(see also ) is a cartographic composer, intended to be a stand-alone hardcopy plot generator. It is not meant to be a Print button for the maps currently displayed in the map canvas, that will need it own controls.

The wx.psmap is available in GRASS 6.4.2+ from the menu
File -> Hardcopy Map Output Utility
The GUI currently supports the most important mapping instructions

- instructions file
- PostScript file
