Hi all,
I am still fairly new to the Python community and world of Python
programming.

  I am having some trouble changing the output directory when I call
Ghostscript.
Any sugguestions would be greatly appreciated.  It seems to work fine,
if I put the file in a directory that I am calling it from, like
outputdir = './temp' or I use the "C" drive w/ outputdir = ''.  All I
am doing is converting a .pdf to a .tif.

device = 'jpeg'
print pdffile
pdffile = 'c:/Chris_J_Stuff/chris.pdf'
outputdir = "c:\\Chris_J_Stuff\\"
print pdffile
print outputdir
suffix = 'tif'
os.system(ghost_dir + ' -dNOPAUSE -dQUIET -sBATCH -sDEVICE=%s
-sOUTPUTFILE=%    s/page%%d.%s %s' % (device, outputdir,suffix,
pdffile))
        

Thank you in advance.

Chris J.
