I think you sent this to the wrong person.

Nope. showpage is used to print every single page - after showpage the
transformation matrix is reset. So you can scale the whole page at the very
end of the page, but you can't scale anything of the page before.

So you can't print anything, before the whole page is done, but this is done
page by page.
