The print/a2ps port

a2ps-4.15.5p0 – format files for printing on PostScript printers (cvsweb github mirror)


A2ps formats each named file for printing in a postscript printer; if
no file is given, a2ps reads from the standard input. The format used
is nice and compact: normally two pages on each physical page, borders
surrounding pages, headers with useful information (page number,
printing date, file name or supplied header), line numbering, etc.
This is very useful for making archive listings of programs.

| Running ${PKGSTEM} on OpenBSD

a2ps(1) uses external helper commands to convert files to PostScript.

Because usage and needs can be different from one installation to the
other, none of these commands are enforced as a dependency of this
package and it is up the administrator to decide which convertion tool
is needed.

They can be configured under ${SYSCONFDIR}/a2ps{,-site}.cfg.

By default, images are converted using the convert(1) utility from the
ImageMagick package.

When using cups(1), lp.default should be set to ${LOCALBASE}/bin/lpr in
