       paps - UTF-8 to PostScript converter using Pango


       paps [options] files...


       paps reads a UTF-8 encoded file and generates a PostScript language rendering of the file.
       The rendering is done by creating outline curves through the pango ft2 backend.


       These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options  starting  with
       two dashes (`-').  A summary of options is included below.

              Landscape output. Default is portrait.

              Number of columns output. Default is 1.
              Please  notice  this option isn't related to the terminal length as in a "80 culums

              Set the font description. Default is Monospace 12.

       --rtl  Do right to left (RTL) layout.

       --paper ps
              Choose paper size. Known paper sizes are legal, letter and A4. Default is A4.

       Postscript points
              Each postscript point equals to 1/72 of an inch. 36 points are 1/2 of an inch.

              Set bottom margin. Default is 36 postscript points.

              Set top margin. Default is 36 postscript points.

              Set left margin. Default is 36 postscript points.

              Set right margin. Default is 36 postscript points.

              Set gutter width. Default is 40 postscript points.

       --help Show summary of options.

              Draw page header for each page.

              Interpret the text as pango markup.

       --lpi  Set the lines per inch. This determines the line spacing.

       --cpi  Set the characters per inch. This is an alternative method of specifying  the  font

              Indicates  that  characters should be stretched in the y-direction to fill up their
              vertical space. This is similar to the texttops behaviour.
