DESCRIPTION

This utility provides functionality approximately equivalent to the Unix enscript(1) program. It prints plain text files using a single font. It currently handles tabs and formfeeds, but not backspaces. It will line-wrap when using fixed-pitch fonts. It will also do kerning and width adjustment.

The default device (-sDEVICE=) and resolution (-r) are as follows:

      gslp      epson      180
      gsbj      bj10e      180
      gsdj      deskjet    300
      gsdj500   djet500    300
      gslj      laserjet   300
By default the current date is formatted as the center header.
