Re: Ghostscript 8.64 executes random code at startup
The ghostscript people in
told me to use the -P- switch, and marked it "RESOLVED WONTFIX".
I guess -P- should be the default, as well as -dSAFER should be.
The way gv invokes gs is "wrong". For example, using command
execve(..., "gs", ... "-dSAFER", ... "any.ps", ...)
So gv is careful to use -dSAFER but does not know about -P-.
about this, see
