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.

OPTIONS
       Standard switches implemented:
              -12BclqRr -b<header> -f<font> -F<hfont> -L<lines> -p<outfile>

       Sun switches implemented:
              -T<n>     set tab width

       Switches ignored:
              -GghKkmow -# -C -d -J -n -P -S -s -t -v

       Switches added:

              --add-to-space <units>
                     add  the given number of 1/72" units to the width of each
                     space (may be negative)

              --add-to-width <units>
                     add the given number of 1/72" units to the width of  each
                     character (may be negative)

              --columns <n>
                     print in <n> columns

              --detect
                     treat the file as PostScript if it starts with %!

              --first-page <n>
                     start printing at page <n>

              --kern <file.afm>
                     kern using information from the given .AFM file

              --last-page <n>
                     stop printing after page <n>

              --(heading|footing)-(left|center|right) <string>
                     set the heading/footing fields; use -B first to clear

              --margin-(top|bottom|left|right) <inches>
                     set a margin

              --no-eject-(file|formfeed)
                     end-of-file/FF only starts a new column, not a new sheet

              --spacing <n>
                     use double (n=2), triple (n=3), etc. spacing
       Also,  the  string %# in a heading or footing is replaced with the page
       #.
