SYNOPSIS

textps [ -cn ] [ -ln ] [ -mn ] [ -tn ] [ -vn ] [ filename... ]

DESCRIPTION

textps is a simple text to PostScript filter. It is usually invoked automatically by a spooler. 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 and decrease the -v or -l option.

OPTIONS

The arguments for all options except -l are floating-point numbers. The argument for -l must be a positive integer.
-cn Use n characters to the inch.
-ln Use n lines per page.
-mn Use a left margin of n points.
-tn Position the baseline of the first line of text n points below the top of the page.
-vn Use a vertical spacing of n points.
The default behaviour is -c12 -l66 -m18 -t8 -v12.
