Print num copies of each page.
only one copy is printed.
Sets the text encoding level to num.
The recognized choices are
digits between 0 and 5.
0 uses the PostScript ashow operator, and produces
output essentially identical to previous versions of dpost.
1 also uses ashow but integrates motion commands
with text commands.
2 uses the PostScript awidthshow operator,
computing space widths in PostScript.
3 also uses awidthshow
but computes space widths in dpost.
4 uses ashow, storing position as differences.
5 emits the same commands as 4
but in a binary PostScript Level 2 representation.
The default is 3 with the ps device.
Magnify each logical page by the factor num.
Pages are scaled
uniformly about the origin,
which is located near the upper left corner of each page.
magnification is 1.0.
Print num logical pages on each piece of paper, where num
can be any positive integer.
By default, num is set to 1.
Print those pages for which numbers are given in the comma-separated
contains single numbers N and ranges N1-N2.
A missing N1 means the lowest
numbered page, a missing N2 means the highest.
The page range is
an expression of logical pages rather than physical sheets of paper.
For example, if you are printing two logical
pages to a sheet, and you specified a range of 4, then two sheets
of paper would print, containing four page layouts.
If you specified a
page range of 3-4, when requesting
two logical pages to a sheet; then only page 3 and page 4 layouts
would print, and they would appear on one physical sheet of paper.
Print files in either portrait or landscape mode.
the first character of mode is significant.
mode is portrait.
Set the line width used to implement troff graphics commands to
points, where a point is approximately 1/72 of an inch.
num is set to 0.3 points.
Translate the origin num inches along the positive x axis.
default coordinate system
has the origin fixed near the upper left corner of the page, with
positive x to the right and positive y down the page.
num moves everything right.
The default offset
is 0 inches.
Translate the origin num inches along the positive y axis.
Positive num moves text up the page.
The default offset is
Use dir as the font directory.
The default dir is
/usr/ucblib/doctools/font, and dpost reads binary font files from
Use dir as the host resident font directory.
Files in this
directory should be complete
PostScript font descriptions, and must be assigned a name that
corresponds to the appropriate two-character troff font name.
Each font file is copied to the output file only when needed
and at most once during each job.
There is no default directory.
Use file as the PostScript prologue which, by default, is
Print marks (in combination with the trimat troff request).
Valid types of marks are:
Mark names can be abbreviated and combined by colons,
e.g. -Mcut:reg will print cut marks and registration marks.
Disables PostScript picture inclusion.
A recommended option when
dpost is run by a spooler in a networked environment.
Use font files for device name as the best description of
available PostScript fonts.
By default, name is set to ps and dpost reads
files from /usr/ucblib/doctools/font/devps.
