|-P queue||select a printer queue (different from the default one)|

|input...||input file(s) [default: stdin]|
If you use the -P option, please remember to pass the same printer queue on to the lpr(1) command.
Be careful if your printer queue configuration includes a setting to create multiple pages per sheet (PS_NUP=2, PS_NUP=4 or PS_NUP=8). In order to make sure that apsfilter(1) does not repeat n-up printing, use the 1pps command line option when actually printing the file.
apspreview only works correctly with entries in /etc/printcap that have been created by /usr/local/share/apsfilter/SETUP. All configuration settings will be copied from the relevant apsfilterrc files.

See apsfilter software center - http://www.apsfilter.org/ - for new versions, bugfixes and known bugs.
Please use the new tool apsfilter-bug(1) to release bug- or problem reports. It automatically presents you a form in an editor window which asks you some standard questions. If you save and quit the editor session, then this report is sent automatically via e-mail to the proper apsfilter mailinglist.
If apsfilter fails to print something or prints it in a way you wouldnt expect and you want to report an apsfilter error then please save the debugging output of one print session using the new aps2file(1) utility by typing aps2file -D -Z options file > /dev/null 2> file.debug and including the debugging output in the file file.debug into the edit session of the apsfilter-bug utility, so that it is included into the mail to the apsfilter mailinglist.
Please note that you need to run /bin/sh (Bourne Shell), bash or a compatible shell, so that the above mentioned output redirection works. Under C-shell (/bin/csh) or tcsh it wouldt work. If you dont know, then simply make sure you use the Bournce shell by typing /bin/sh or bash, then you should have no problems with redirection of stdout and stderr (> /dev/null 2> file.debug).
