DESCRIPTION
       Enscript converts text files to PostScript and spools generated
       PostScript output to the specified printer or leaves it to file.  If no
       input files are given, enscript processes standard input.  Enscript can
       be extended to handle different output media and it has many options
       which can be used to customize printouts.


OPTIONS
       -# num  Print num copies of each page.

       -1, -2, --columns=num
               Specify how many columns each page have.  With long option
               --columns=num you can specify more than 2 columns per page.

       -a pages, --pages=pages
               Specify which pages are printed.  Page specification pages can
               be given in following formats:

               begin-end
                       print pages from begin to end

               -end    print pages from 0 to end

               begin-  print pages from begin to end

               page    print page page

               odd     print odd pages

               even    print even pages

       -A align, --file-align=align
               Align separate input files to even align page count.  This is
               handy for two-side and 2-up printings (--file-align=2).

       -b header, --header=header
               Use text header as a page header.  The default page header is
               constructed from file's name and last modification time.

               The header string header can contain the same formatting
               escapes which can be specified for the %Format directives in
               the user defined fancy headers.  For example, the following
               option prints the file name, current data and page numbers:

               enscript --header='$n %W Page $% of $=' *.c

               The header string can also contain left, center and right
               justified fields which are separated with the '|' character:

               enscript --header='$n|%W|Page $% of $=' *.c

               now the file name is printed left justified, the date is
               centered to the header and the page numbers are printed right
               justified.

       -B, --no-header
               Do not print page headers.

       -c, --truncate-lines
               Cut lines that are too long.  As a default, enscript wraps long
               lines so no information is lost.

               See also option --slice which can be used to slice long lines
               to separate pages.

       -C[start_line], --line-numbers[=start_line]
               Precede each line with its line number.  Optional argument
               start_line specifies the number of the first line in the input.
               The number of the first line defaults to 1.

       -d name Spool output to the printer name.

       -D key[:value], --setpagedevice=key[:value]
               Pass a page device definition to the generated PostScript
               output.  If no value is given, key key is removed from
               definitions.

               For example, command

               enscript -DDuplex:true foo.txt

               prints file foo.txt in duplex (two side) mode.

               Page device operators are implementation dependant but they are
               standardized.  See section PAGE DEVICE OPTIONS for details.

       -e[char], --escapes[=char]
               Enable special escapes interpretation (see section SPECIAL
               ESCAPES).  If argument char is given, it changes the escape
               character to char.  The default escape character is 0.

       -E[lang], --pretty-print[=lang]
               Pretty-print source code by creating a special input filter
               with the states program.  Optional argument lang specifies the
               language to highlight, as a default states makes an educated
               guess.

               A description of supported highlighting languages and file
               formats can be printed with command:

               enscript --help-pretty-print

               The highlighting rules are defined in the
               `/usr/local/share/enscript/enscript.st' file which can be
               edited to create highlighting definitions for new languages.

               Note! You can't use your own input filters with this option.

       -f name, --font=name
               Select font that is used for body text.  The default body font
               is Courier10, unless multicolumn landscape printing mode is
               selected, in which case the default is Courier7.

               Font specification name contains two parts: font's name and
               font's size in points.  For example "Times-Roman12" selects
               "Times-Roman" font with size 12pt.

               The font specification name can also be given in format
               `name@ptsize', where font's name and point size are separated
               by a `@' character.  This allows enscript to use fonts which
               contain digit characters in their names.

               The font point size can also be given in format width/height
               where width and height specify the font's size in x- and y-
               directions.  For example "Times-Roman@10/12" selects 10 points
               wide and 12 points high "Times-Roman" font.

               Note! font sizes can be given as a decimal number.  For example
               "Times-Roman10.2" selects 10.2pt "Times-Roman" font.

       -F name, --header-font=name
               Select font for header texts.

       -g, --print-anyway
               Print file even if it contains binary data.  Option is here
               only for compatibility since enscript prints binary files
               anyway.

       -G, --fancy-header[=name]
               Print fancy page header name to top of each page.  Option -G
               specifies the default fancy header (see section CONFIGURATION
               FILES to see how the default fancy header can be changed).

       -h, --no-job-header
               Suppress printing of the job header page.

       -H[num], --highlight-bars[=num]
               Specify how high highlight bars are in lines.  If num is not
               given, the default value 2 is used.  As a default, no highlight
               bars are printed.

       -i num, --indent=num
               Indent every line num characters.  The indentation can also be
               specified in other units by appending an unit specifier after
               the number.  Possible unit specifiers and the corresponding
               units are:

               c       centimeters

               i       inches

               l       characters (default)

               p       PostScript points

       -I filter, --filter=filter
               Read all input files through input filter filter.  Input filter
               can be a single command or a command pipeline and it can refer
               to the name of the input file with escape `%s'.  The name of
               the input file stdin can be changed with option
               `--filter-stdin'.

               For example, the following command can be used to print file
               `foo.c' by using only upper-case characters:

               enscript --filter="cat %s | tr 'a-z' 'A-Z'" foo.c

               And to highlight changes made to files since the last checkout:

               enscript --filter="rcsdiff %s | diffpp %s" -e *.c

               Note! To include string "%s" to the filter command, you must
               write it as "%%s".

       -j, --borders
               Print borders around columns.

       -J title
               An alias for option -t, --title.

       -k, --page-prefeed
               Enable page prefeed.

       -K, --no-page-prefeed
               Disable page prefeed (default).

       -l, --lineprinter
               Emulate lineprinter.  This option is a shortcut for options:
               --lines-per-page=66, --no-header.

       -L num, --lines-per-page=num
               Print only num lines per each page.

       -m, --mail
               Send mail notification to user after print job has been
               completed.

       -M name, --media=name
               Select output media name.  Enscript's default output media is
               Letterdj.

       -n num, --copies=num
               Print num copies of each page.

       -N nl, --newline=nl
               Select the newline character.  Possible values for nl are: n
               (unix newline, 0xa hex) and r (mac newline, 0xd hex).

       -o file An alias for option -p, --output.

       -O, --missing-characters
               Print a listing of character codes which couldn't be printed.

       -p file, --output=file
               Leave output to file file.  If file is `-', leave output to
               stdout.

       -P name, --printer=name
               Spool output to the printer name.

       -q, --quiet, --silent
               Make enscript really quiet.  Only fatal error messages are
               printed to stderr.

       -r, --landscape
               Print in landscape mode; rotate page 90 degrees.

       -R, --portrait
               Print in portrait mode (default).

       -s num, --baselineskip=num
               Specify the baseline skip in PostScript points.  Number num can
               be given as a decimal number.  When enscript moves from line to
               line, current point y coordinate is moved (font point size +
               baselineskip) points down.  The default baseline skip is 1.

       -S key[:value], --statusdict=key[:value]
               Pass a statusdict definition to the generated PostScript
               output.  If no value is given, key key is removed from
               definitions.

               Statusdict operators are implementation dependant; see
               printer's documentation for details.

               For example, command

               enscript -Ssetpapertray:1 foo.txt

               prints file foo.txt by using paper from the paper tray 1
               (assuming that printer supports paper tray selection).

       -t title, --title=title
               Set banner page's job title to title.  Option sets also the
               name of the input file stdin.

       -T num, --tabsize=num
               Set tabulator size to num (default is 8).

       -u[text], --underlay[=text]
               Print string text under every page.  Text's properties can be
               changed with options --ul-angle, --ul-font, --ul-gray,
               --ul-position and --ul-style.

               If no text is given, no underlay is printed.  This can be used
               to remove underlay that was specified with the `Underlay'
               configuration file option.

       -U num, --nup=num
               Print num logical pages on each output page (N-up printing).

       -v, --verbose[=level]
               Tell what enscript is doing.

       -V, --version
               Print enscript version and exit.

       -W [lang], --language[=lang]
               Generate output in language lang.  Possible values for lang
               are:

               PostScript
                       generate PostScript (default)

               html    generate HTML

               overstrike
                       generate overstrikes (line printers, less)

               rtf     generate RTF (Rich Text Format)

       -X name, --encoding=name
               Use input encoding name.  Currently enscript supports following
               encodings:

               88591, latin1
                       ISO-8859-1 (ISO Latin1) (enscript's default encoding).

               88592, latin2
                       ISO-8859-2 (ISO Latin2)

               88593, latin3
                       ISO-8859-3 (ISO Latin3)

               88594, latin4
                       ISO-8859-4 (ISO Latin4)

               88595, cyrillic
                       ISO-8859-5 (ISO Cyrillic)

               88597, greek
                       ISO-8859-7 (ISO Greek)

               ascii   7-bit ascii

               asciifise, asciifi, asciise
                       7-bit ascii with some scandinavian (fi, se) extensions

               asciidkno, asciidk, asciino
                       7-bit ascii with some scandinavian (dk, no) extensions

               ibmpc, pc, dos
                       IBM PC charset

               mac     Mac charset

               vms     VMS multinational charset

               hp8     HP Roman-8 charset

               koi8    Adobe Standard Cyrillic Font KOI8 charset

               ps, PS  PostScript font's default encoding

               pslatin1, ISOLatin1Encoding
                       PostScript interpreter's `ISOLatin1Encoding'

       -z, --no-formfeed
               Turn off form feed character interpretation.

       -Z, --pass-through
               Pass through all PostScript and PCL files without any
               modifications.  This allows that enscript can be used as a lp
               filter.

               PostScript files are recognized by looking up the `%!' magic
               cookie from the beginning of the file. Note! Enscript
               recognized also the Windoze damaged `^D%!' cookie.

               PCL files are recognized by looking up the `^[E' or `^[%' magic
               cookies from the beginning of the file.

       --color[=color]
               Set the pretty-printing color model to color.  If no color is
               specified, use color model emacs.

       --download-font=fontname
               Include the font description file (.pfa or .pfb file) of the
               font fontname to the generated output.

       --filter-stdin=name
               Specify how stdin is shown to the input filter.  The default
               value is an empty string ("") but some programs require that
               stdin is called something else, usually "-".

       --h-column-height=height
               Set the horizontal column height to be height PostScript
               points.  The option sets the formfeed type to
               horizontal-columns.

       --help  Print short help message and exit.

       --help-pretty-print
               Describe all supported --pretty-print languages and file
               formats.

       --highlight-bar-gray=gray
               Specify the gray level which is used to print highlight bars.

       --list-media
               List the names of all known output media and exit successfully.

       --list-options
               List all options and their current values.  Exit successfully.

       --margins=left:right:top:bottom
               Adjust page marginals to be exact left, right, top and bottom
               PostScript points.  Any of arguments can be left empty in which
               case the default value is used.

       --mark-wrapped-lines[=style]
               Mark wrapped lines in the output with style style.  Possible
               values for style are:

               none    do not mark them (default)

               plus    print a plus (+) character to the end of each wrapped
                       line

               box     print a black box to the end of each wrapped line

               arrow   print a small arrow to the end of each wrapped line

       --non-printable-format=format
               Specify how non-printable characters are printed.  Possible
               values for format are:

               caret   caret notation: `^@', `^A', `^B', ...

               octal   octal notation: `\000', `\001', `\002', ... (default)

               questionmark
                       replace non-printable characters with a question mark
                       `?'

               space   replace non-printable characters with a space ` '

       --nup-xpad=num
               Set the page x-padding of the n-up printing to num PostScript
               points.  The default is 10 points.

       --nup-ypad=num
               Set the page y-padding of the n-up printing to num PostScript
               points.  The default is 10 points.

       --page-label-format=format
               Set page label format to format.  Page label format specifies
               how labels for the `%%Page:' PostScript comments are formatted.
               Possible values are:

               short   Print current pagenumber: `%%Page: (1) 1' (default)

               long    Print current filename and pagenumber: `%%Page:
                       (main.c:  1) 1'

       --ps-level=level
               Set the PostScript language level, that enscript uses for its
               output, to level.  The possible values are 1, and 2.

       --printer-options=options
               Pass extra options to the printer command.

       --rotate-even-pages
               Rotate each even-numbered page 180 degrees.

       --slice=num
               Print vertical slice num.  Slices are vertical regions of input
               files, new slice starts from the point where the line would
               otherwise be wrapped to the next line.  Slice numbers start
               from 1.

       --toc   Print table of contents to the end of the print job.

       --word-wrap
               Wrap long lines from word boundaries.

       --ul-angle=angle
               Set underlay text's angle.  As a default, angle is
               atan(-page_height, page_width).

       --ul-font=name
               Select font for the underlay text.  The default underlay font
               is Times-Roman200.

       --ul-gray=num
               Print underlay text with gray value num (0 ... 1), the default
               gray is .8.

       --ul-position=position_spec
               Set underlay text's starting position according to
               position_spec.  Position specification must be given in format:
               `sign xpos sign ypos', where sign must be `+' or `-'.  Positive
               dimensions are measured from the lower left corner and negative
               dimensions from the upper right corner.  For example, spec
               `+0-0' specifies the upper left corner and `-0+0' specifies the
               lower right corner.

       --ul-style=style
               Set underlay text's style to style.  Possible values for style
               are:

               outline print outline underlay texts (default)

               filled  print filled underlay texts


CONFIGURATION FILES
       Enscript reads configuration information from following sources (in
       this order): command line options, environment variable ENSCRIPT,
       user's personal configuration file ($HOME/.enscriptrc), site
       configuration file (/usr/local/etc/enscriptsite.cfg) and system's
       global configuration file (/usr/local/etc/enscript.cfg).

       The configuration files have the following format:

       Empty lines and lines starting with `#' are comments.

       All other lines are option lines and have format:

       OPTION [arguments ...].

       Following options can be specified:

       AcceptCompositeCharacters: bool
               Specify whatever PostScript font's composite characters are
               accepted as printable or should they be considered as non-
               existent.  The default value is false (0).

       AFMPath: path
               Specifies search path for the AFM files.

       Clean7Bit: bool
               Specify how characters greater than 127 are printed.  Value
               true (1) generates 7-bit clean code by escaping all characters
               greater than 127 to the backslash-octal notation (default).
               Value false (0) generates 8-bit PostScript code leaving all
               characters untouched.

       DefaultEncoding: name
               Select the default input encoding.  Encoding name name can be
               one of the values of the -X, --encoding option.

       DefaultFancyHeader: name
               Select the default fancy header.  Default header is used when
               option -G is specified or option --fancy-header is given
               without an argument.  System-wide default is `enscript'.

       DefaultMedia: name
               Select the default output media.

               Specify the escape character for special escapes.  The default
               value is 0.

       FormFeedType: type
               Specify what to do when a formfeed character is encountered
               from the input.  Possible values for type are:

               column  move to the beginning of the next column (default)

       HighlightBarGray: gray
               Specify the gray level which is used to print highlight bars.

       HighlightBars: num
               Specify how high highlight bars are in lines.  The default
               value is 0 so no highlight bars are printed.

       LibraryPath: path
               Specifies enscript's library path that is used to lookup
               various resources.  Default path is:
               `/usr/local/share/enscript:home/.enscript'.  Where home is the
               user's home directory.

       MarkWrappedLines: style
               Mark wraped lines in the output with style style.  Possible
               values for format are the same which can be given for the
               --mark-wrapped-lines option.

       Media: name width height llx lly urx ury
               Add a new output media with name name.  Media's physical
               dimensions are width and height.  Media's bounding box is
               specified by points (llx, lly) and (urx, ury).  Enscript prints
               all graphics inside media's bounding box.

               User can select this media by giving option -M name.

       NoJobHeaderSwitch: switch
               Specify the spooler option to suppress the print job header.
               This option is passed to the printer spooler when enscript's
               option -h, --no-job-header is selected.

       NonPrintableFormat: format
               Specify how non-printable characters are printed.  Possible
               values for format are the same which can be given for the
               --non-printable-format option.

       OutputFirstLine: line
               Set PostScript output's first line to line, the default value
               is PS-Adobe-3.0.  Since some printers do not like DSC levels
               greater than 2.0, this option can be used to change the output
               first line to something more suitable like %!PS-Adobe-2.0 or
               %!.

       PageLabelFormat: format
               Set page label format to format.  Possible values for format
               are the same which can be given for the --page-label-format
               option.

       PagePrefeed: bool
               Enable / disable page prefeed.  The default is false (0).

       PostScriptLevel: level
               Set the PostScript language level, that enscript uses for its
               output, to level.  The possible values for level are the same
               which can be given for the --ps-level option.

       Printer: name
               Names the printer to spool to.

       QueueParam: name
               The spooler command switch for the printer queue, e.g. -P in
               lpr -Pps.  This option can also be used to pass other flags to
               the spooler command but they must be given before the queue
               switch.

       SetPageDevice: key[:value]
               Pass a page device definition to the generated PostScript
               output.

       Spooler: name
               Names printer spooler command.  Enscript pipes generated
               PostScript to command name.

       StatesColorModel: model
               Set the pretty-printing color model to model.  Possible values
               are blackwhite and emacs.

       StatesConfigFile: file
               Read pretty-printer states configuration from file file.  The
               default config file is `/usr/local/share/enscript/enscript.st'.

               output.

       TOCFormat: format
               Format table of contents entries with format string format.
               Format string format can contain the same escapes which are
               used to format header strings with the `%Format' special
               comment.

       Underlay: text
               Print string text under every page.

       UnderlayAngle: num

CUSTOMIZATION
       Users can create their own fancy headers by creating a header
       description file and placing it in a directory which is in enscript's
       library path.  The name of the header file must be in format:
       `headername.hdr'.  Header can be selected by giving option:
       --fancy-header=headername.

       Header description file contains PostScript code that paints the
       header.  Description file must provide procedure do_header which is
       called by enscript at the beginning of every page.

       Header description file contains two parts: comments and code.  Parts
       are separated by a line containing text:

       % -- code follows this line --

       Enscript copies only the code part of description file to the generated
       PostScript output.  The comments part can contain any data, it is not
       copied.  If separator line is missing, no data is copied to output.

       Enscript defines following constants which can be used in header
       description files:

       d_page_w        page width

       d_page_h        page height

       d_header_x      header lower left x coordinate

       d_header_y      header lower left y coordinate

       d_header_w      header width

       d_header_h      header height

       d_footer_x      footer lower left x coordinate

       d_footer_y      footer lower left y coordinate

       d_footer_w      footer width

       d_footer_h      footer height

       d_output_w      width of the text output area

       d_output_h      height of the text output area

       user_header_p   predicate which tells if user has defined his/her own
                       header string: true/false

       user_header_left_str
                       if user_header_p is true, this is the left field of the
                       user supplied header string.

       user_header_center_str
                       if user_header_p is true, this is the center field of
                       the user supplied header string

       user_header_right_str
                       if user_header_p is true, this is the right field of
                       the user supplied header string

       HF              standard header font (from -F, --header-font option).
                       This can be selected simply by invoking command: `HF
                       setfont'.

       pagenum         the number of the current page

       fname           the full name of the printed file (/foo/bar.c)

       fdir            the directory part of the file name (/foo)

       ftail           file name without the directory part (bar.c)

       gs_languagelevel
                       PostScript interpreter's language level (currently 1 or
                       2)

       You can also use the following special comments to customize your
       headers and to specify some extra options.  Special comments are like
       DSC comments but they start with a single `%' character; special
       comments start from the beginning of the line and they have the
       following syntax:

       %commentname: options

       Currently enscript support the following special comments:

       %Format: name format
               Define a new string constant name according to the format
               string format.  Format string start from the first non-space
               character and it ends to the end of the line.  Format string
               can contain general `%' escapes and input file related `$'
               escapes.  Currently following escapes are supported:

               %%      character `%'

               $$      character `$'

               $%      current page number

               $=      number of pages in the current file

               $(VAR)  value of the environment variable VAR.

               %c      trailing component of the current working directory

               %C ($C) current time (file modification time) in `hh:mm:ss'
                       format

               %d      current working directory

               %D ($D) current date (file modification date) in `yy-mm-dd'
                       format

               %D{string} ($D{string})
                       format string string with the strftime(3) function.
                       `%D{}' refers to the current date and `$D{}' to the
                       input file's last modification date.

               %E ($E) current date (file modification date) in `yy/mm/dd'
                       format

               %F ($F) current date (file modification date) in `dd.mm.yyyy'
                       format

               %H      document title

               $L      number of lines in the current input file.  This is
                       valid only for the toc entries, it can't be used in
                       header strings.

               %m      the hostname up to the first `.' character

               %M      the full hostname

               %n      the user login name

               $n      input file name without the directory part

               %N      the user's pw_gecos field up to the first `,' character

               $N      the full input file name

               %t ($t) current time (file modification time) in 12-hour am/pm
                       format

               %T ($T) current time (file modification time) in 24-hour format
                       `hh:mm'

               %* ($*) current time (file modification time) in 24-hour format
                       with seconds `hh:mm:ss'

               $v      the sequence number of the current input file

               $V      the sequence number of the current input file in the
                       `Table of Contents' format: if the --toc option is
                       given, escape expands to `num-'; if the --toc is not
                       given, escape expands to an empty string.

               %W ($W) current date (file modification date) in `mm/dd/yy'
                       format

               All format directives except `$=' can also be given in format

               escape width directive

               where width specifies the width of the column to which the
               escape is printed.  For example, escape "$5%" will expand to
               something like " 12".  If the width is negative, the value will
               be printed left-justified.

               For example, the `emacs.hdr' defines its date string with the
               following format comment:

               %Format: eurdatestr %E

               which expands to:

               /eurdatestr (96/01/08) def

       %HeaderHeight: height
               Allocate height points space for the page header.  The default
               header height is 36 points.

       %FooterHeight: height
               Allocate height points space for the page footer.  The default
               footer height is 0 points.

       According to Adobe's Document Structuring Conventions (DSC), all
       resources needed by a document must be listed in document's prolog.
       Since user's can create their own headers, enscript don't know what
       resources those headers use.  That's why all headers must contain a
       standard DSC comment that lists all needed resources.  For example,
       used fonts can be listed with following comment:

       %%DocumentNeededResources: font fontname1 fontname2

       Comment can be continued to the next line with the standard
       continuation comment:

       %%+ font fontname3


SPECIAL ESCAPES
       Enscript supports special escape sequences which can be used to add
       some page formatting commands to ASCII documents.  As a default,
       special escapes interpretation is off, so all ASCII files print out as
       everyone expects.  Special escapes interpretation is activated by
       giving option -e, --escapes to enscript.

       All special escapes start with the escape character.  The default
       escape character is ^@ (octal 000); escape character can be changed
       with option -e, --escapes.  Escape character is followed by escape's
       name and optional options and arguments.

       Currently enscript supports following escapes:

       bggray  change the text background color.  Escape's syntax is:

               ^@bggray{gray}

               where gray is the new text background gray value.  The default
               value is 1.0 (white).

       color   change the text color.  Escape's syntax is:

               ^@color{red green blue}

               where color components red, green and blue are given as a
               decimal numbers between 0 and 1.

       comment comment the rest of the line including the newline character.
               Escape's syntax is:

               ^@comment text newline_character

       escape  change the escape character.  Escape's syntax is

               ^@escape{code}

               where code is the decimal code of the new escape character.

       epsf    inline EPS file to the document.  Escape's syntax is:

               ^@epsf[options]{filename}

               where options is an optional sequence of option characters and
               values enclosed with brackets and filename is the name of the
               EPS file.

               If filename ends to the `|' character, then filename is assumed
               to name a command that prints EPS data to its standard output.
               In this case, enscript opens a pipe to the specified command
               and reads EPS data from pipe.

               Following options can be given for the epsf escape:

               c       print image centered

               r       print image right justified

               n       do not update current point.  Following output is
                       printed to that position where the current point was
                       just before the epsf escape

               nx      do not update current point x coordinate

               ny      do not update current point y coordinate

               xnum    move image's top left x coordinate num characters from
                       current point x coordinate (relative position)

               xnuma   set image's top left x coordinate to column num
                       (absolute position)

               ynum    move image's top left y coordinate num lines from
                       current line (relative position)

               ynuma   set image's top left y coordinate to line num (absolute
                       position)

               hnum    set image's height to num lines

               snum    scale image with factor num

               sxnum   scale image in x direction with factor num

               synum   scale image in y direction with factor num

               As a default, all dimensions are given in lines (vertical) and
               characters (horizontal).  You can also specify other units by
               appending an unit specifier after number.  Possible unit
               specifiers and the corresponding units are:

               c       centimeters

               i       inches

               l       lines or characters (default)

               p       PostScript points

               For example to print an image one inch high, you can specify
               height by following options: h1i (1 inch), h2.54c (2.54 cm),
               h72p (72 points).

       font    select current font.  Escape's syntax is:

               ^@font{fontname}

               where fontname is a standard font specification.  Special font
               specification default can be used to select the default body
               font (enscript's default or the one specified by the command
               line option -f, --font).

       ps      include raw PostScript code to the output.  Escape's syntax is:

               ^@ps{code}

       shade   highlight regions of text by changing the text background
               color.  Escape's syntax is:

               ^@shade{gray}

               where gray is the new text background gray value.  The default
               value is 1.0 (white) which disables highlighting.


PAGE DEVICE OPTIONS
       Page device is a PostScript level 2 feature that offers an uniform
       interface to control printer's output device.  Enscript protects all
       page device options inside an if block so they have no effect in level
       1 interpreters.  Although all level 2 interpreters support page device,
       they do not have to support all page device options.  For example some
       printers can print in duplex mode and some can not.  Refer to the
       documentation of your printer for supported options.

       Here are some usable page device options which can be selected with the
       -D, --setpagedevice option.  For a complete listing, see PostScript
       Language Reference Manual: section 4.11 Device Setup.

       Collate boolean
               how output is organized when printing multiple copies

       Duplex boolean
               duplex (two side) printing

       ManualFeed boolean
               manual feed paper tray

       OutputFaceUp boolean
               print output `face up' or `face down'

       Tumble boolean
               how opposite sides are positioned in duplex printing


PRINTING EXAMPLES
       Following printing examples assume that enscript uses the default
       configuration.  If default actions have been changed from the
       configuration files, some examples will behave differently.

       enscript foo.txt
               Print file foo.txt to the default printer.

       enscript -Possu foo.txt
               Print file foo.txt to printer ossu.

       enscript -pfoo.ps foo.txt
               Print file foo.txt, but leave PostScript output to file foo.ps.

       enscript -2 foo.txt
               Print file foo.txt to two columns.

       enscript -2r foo.txt
               Print file to two columns and rotate output 90 degrees
               (landscape).

       enscript -DDuplex:true foo.txt
               Print file in duplex (two side) mode (printer dependant).

       enscript -G2rE -U2 foo.c
               My default code printing command: gaudy header, two columns,
               landscape, code highlighting, 2-up printing.

       enscript -E --color -Whtml --toc -pfoo.html *.h *.c
               A nice HTML report of your project's C source files.


ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       The environment variable ENSCRIPT can be used to pass default options
       for enscript.  For example, to select the default body font to be
       Times-Roman 7pt, set the following value to the ENSCRIPT environment
       variable:

       -fTimes-Roman7

       The value of the ENSCRIPT variable is processed before the command line
       options, so command line options can be used to overwrite these
       defaults.

       Variable ENSCRIPT_LIBRARY specifies the enscript's library directory.
       It can be used to overwrite the build-in default
       `/usr/local/share/enscript'.


RETURN VALUE
       Enscript returns value 1 to the shell if any errors were encountered.
       On successfull termination, the return code is constucted from the
       following flags:

       0       no errors or warnings

       2       some lines were truncated or wrapped

       4       some characters were missing from the used fonts

       8       some characters were unprintable


FILES
       /usr/local/share/enscript/*.hdr         header files
       /usr/local/share/enscript/*.enc         input encoding vectors
       /usr/local/share/enscript/enscript.pro  PostScript prolog
       /usr/local/share/enscript/*.afm         AFM files for PostScript fonts
       /usr/local/share/enscript/font.map      index for the AFM files
       /usr/local/share/enscript/enscript.st   states definition file
       /usr/local/etc/enscript.cfg             system-wide configuration file
       /usr/local/etc/enscriptsite.cfg         site configuration file
       ~/.enscriptrc                           personal configuration file
       ~/.enscript/                            personal resource directory
