       textps - text to PostScript filter
       nscript - text to PostScript converter


       textps [ -T[option[,option]*]* ] [ lpr filter options ] [ filename...  ]

       options: [ c=n ] [ l=n ] [ m=n ] [ t=n ] [ v=n ]

       nscript [ -G ] [ -r ] [ -2 ] [ -t width ] [ -pfile ] [ -Pprinter ] [ filename...  ]


       textps  is  a  simple  text  to  PostScript  filter.   When invoked as nscript it (weakly)
       simulates the Adobe Systems Incorporated enscript program, converting text  to  PostScript
       and  adding  headers.   textps  is  usually invoked automatically by a print spooler while
       nscript is usually invoked by a user.  Input files can  use  ISO  Latin-1.   Two  or  more
       identical  overstruck  characters  are rendered using a bold font.  Tabs are assumed to be
       set every 8 character positions.  textps is designed to produce good output with lpr -p or
       pr | lpr;  if you print unpaginated text, you will need to increase the t option value and
       decrease the v or l option value.


       c=n    Use n characters to the inch.

       l=n    Use n lines per page.

       m=n    Use a left margin of n points.

       t=n    Position the baseline of the first line of text n points below the top of the page.

       v=n    Use a vertical spacing of n points.

       The default behaviour is -Tc=12,l=66,m=18,t=8,v=12.


       By default, nscript will send the formatted output to lpr; the -P option  can  select  the

       -G     Gaudy  output  -  a  header and labels for the input files are placed on the output

       -r     rotated (landscape) output.

              Set tab stop to width characters.

       -2     two column output.

       -pfile send output to file.

              spool output to printer using lpr.

       Note: the combination nscript -2Gr is useful for viewing listings.
