[foxboro] AW: printing to a file

Thanks for the tip.

But I search at a tool which supports a conversion =
Non-Ascii-To-Postscript.

Regards,
Andreas

Hey,

Try the utility "/usr/local/a2ps".
It stands for Ascii-To-Postscript, and it is available on all AW50x =
series
systems.

It supports many different output formats, such as two printed pages =
per
page, landscape/portrait, etc.
Type in "a2ps" (without any arguments) for instructions on how to use =
it.

To print to a postscript printer, use it as a filter:
a2ps /tmp/myfile | lp -dmyPrinter

Good Luck.

Hi,

Is there a way to print into a file?

The file format should be postscript or tiff or another standard =
format.

The application should support the command line

lp -dMyFilePrinter /tmp/myfile

and

/tmp/myfile > /dev/MyFilePrinter

Andreas
