This utility provides functionality approximately equivalent to the Unix enscript(1) program. It prints plain text files using a single font. It currently handles tabs and formfeeds, but not backspaces. It will line-wrap when using fixed-pitch fonts. It will also do kerning and width adjustment.

The default device (-sDEVICE=) and resolution (-r) are as follows: gslp epson 180 gsbj bj10e 180 gsdj deskjet 300 gsdj500 djet500 300 gslj laserjet 300 By default the current date is formatted as the center header.


Standard switches implemented: -12BclqRr -b<header> -f<font> -F<hfont> -L<lines> -p<outfile>
Sun switches implemented: -T<n>   set tab width
Switches ignored: -GghKkmow -# -C -d -J -n -P -S -s -t -v
Switches added:
--add-to-space <units> add the given number of 1/72" units to the width of each space (may be negative)
--add-to-width <units> add the given number of 1/72" units to the width of each character (may be negative)
--columns <n> print in <n> columns
--detect treat the file as PostScript if it starts with %!
--first-page <n> start printing at page <n>
--kern <file.afm> kern using information from the given .AFM file
--last-page <n> stop printing after page <n>
--(heading|footing)-(left|center|right) <string> set the heading/footing fields; use -B first to clear
--margin-(top|bottom|left|right) <inches> set a margin
--no-eject-(file|formfeed) end-of-file/FF only starts a new column, not a new sheet
--spacing <n> use double (n=2), triple (n=3), etc. spacing
Also, the string %# in a heading or footing is replaced with the page #.
