NAME
       systempapername, defaultpapername, systempapersizefile,
       defaultpapersizefile - return names for managing system paper
       information

SYNOPSYS
       #include <paper.h>

       const char* systempapername(void)
       const char* defaultpapername(void)

       const char* systempapersizefile(void)
       const char* defaultpapersizefile(void)

DESCRIPTION
       systempapersize() returns the name of the default paper to be used by a
       program.  This name is obtained by looking in that order at the
       PAPERCONF environment variable, at the contents of the file returned by
       systempapersizefile() or by using defaultpapersize() as a last chance.

       defaultpapername() returns the name of the default paper to use if it
       is impossible to get its name from the environment.

       systempapersizefile() returns the path of the papersize file to use.
       This path is obtained by looking at the PAPERSIZE environment variable
       or by calling defaultpapersizefile().

       defaultpapersizefile returns the path of the default papersize file.

ENVIRONMENT
       PAPERCONF           Paper size to use regardless of what the papersize
                           file contains.

       PAPERSIZE           Full path to a file containing the paper size to
                           use.

FILES
       /etc/papersize      Contains the name of the system-wide default paper
                           size to be used.
