    a2ps - format files for printing on a PostScript printer


    a2ps [OPTION]... [FILE]...  


    Convert FILE(s) or standard input to PostScript. By default, the output is sent to the default printer. An output file may be specified with -o.

    Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too. Long options marked with * require a yes/no argument, corresponding short options stand for `yes'.  


    display version
    display this help
    report guessed types of FILES
    report the full path of library files named FILES
    report the full path of library files matching FILES
    display default settings and parameters
    detailed list on TOPIC (delegations, encodings, features, variables, media, ppd, printers, prologues, style-sheets, user-options)

    After having performed the task, exit successfully. Detailed lists may provide additional help on specific features.  


    -q, --quiet, --silent
    be really quiet
    -v, --verbose[=LEVEL]
    set verbosity on, or to LEVEL
    -=, --user-option=OPTION
    use the user defined shortcut OPTION
    enable debugging features
    -D, --define=KEY[:VALUE]
    unset variable KEY or set to VALUE


    -M, --medium=NAME
    use output medium NAME
    -r, --landscape
    print in landscape mode
    -R, --portrait
    print in portrait mode
    number of columns per sheet
    number of rows per sheet
    first fill (DIRECTION=) rows, or columns
    -1, -2, ..., -9
    predefined font sizes and layouts for 1.. 9 virtuals
    -A, --file-align=MODE
    align separate files according to MODE (fill, rank page, sheet, or a number)
    -j, --borders*
    print borders around columns
    define an interior margin of size NUM

    The options -1.. -9 affect several primitive parameters to set up predefined layouts with 80 columns. Therefore the order matters: `-R -f40 -2' is equivalent to `-2'. To modify the layout, use `-2Rf40', or compose primitive options (`--columns', `--font-size' etc.).  

    Virtual pages:

    precede each NUM lines with its line number
    alias for --line-numbers=5
    -f, --font-size=SIZE
    use font SIZE (float) for the body text
    -L, --lines-per-page=NUM
    scale the font to print NUM lines per virtual
    -l, --chars-per-line=NUM
    scale the font to print NUM columns per virtual
    -m, --catman
    process FILE as a man page (same as -L66)
    -T, --tabsize=NUM
    set tabulator size to NUM
    --non-printable-format=FMT specify how non-printable chars are printed


    -B, --no-header
    no page headers at all
    -b, --header[=TEXT]
    set page header
    -u, --underlay[=TEXT]
    print TEXT under every page
    set page title to TITLE
    set left and right page title to TEXT
    set sheet footers to TEXT

    The TEXTs may use special escapes.  


    -a, --pages[=RANGE]
    select the pages to print
    -c, --truncate-lines*
    cut long lines
    -i, --interpret*
    interpret tab, bs and ff chars
    specify the eol char (TYPE: r, n, nr, rn, any)
    -X, --encoding=NAME
    use input encoding NAME
    -t, --title=NAME
    set the name of the job
    set the name of the input file stdin
    force binary printing
    -Z, --delegate*
    delegate files to another application
    generate a table of content

    When delegations are enabled, a2ps may use other applications to handle the processing of files that should not be printed as raw information, e.g., HTML PostScript, PDF etc.  


    -E, --pretty-print[=LANG]
    enable pretty-printing (set style to LANG)
    set pretty printing highlight LEVEL LEVEL can be none, normal or heavy
    alias for --highlight-level=heavy
    level of comments stripping


    -o, --output=FILE
    leave output to file FILE. If FILE is `-', leave output to stdout.
    override the usual version control
    override the usual backup suffix
    -P, --printer=NAME
    send output to printer NAME
    send output to the default printer (this is the default behavior)


    include as PostScript prologue
    automatic PPD selection or set to KEY
    -n, --copies=NUM
    print NUM copies of each page
    -s, --sides=MODE
    set the duplex MODE (`1' or `simplex', `2' or `duplex', `tumble')
    -S, --setpagedevice=K[:V]
    pass a page device definition to output
    pass a statusdict definition to the output
    -k, --page-prefeed
    enable page prefeed
    -K, --no-page-prefeed
    disable page prefeed

    By default a2ps is tuned to do what you want to, so trust it. To pretty print the content of the `src' directory and a table of content, and send the result to the printer `lw',

    $ a2ps -P lw --toc src/*

    To process the files `' and `sample.html' and display the result,

    $ a2ps -P display sample.html

    To process a mailbox in 4 up,

    $ a2ps -=mail -4 mailbox

    To print as a booklet on the default printer, which is Duplex capable,

    $ a2ps -=book paper.dvi.gz -d
