DESCRIPTION

This utility provides functionality approximately equivalent to the
Unix enscript 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.
