No problem printing _postscript_ files with ghostscript. The printcap
file as I understand it identifies the printer and any filters needed--in
my case a filter for the hp to prevent stairstepping. All the print
commands (pr, gs, cat) work, but trying it with an html file displays the
formating, as we all agree, rather than executing. It's not a real high
priority at the moment (I've been doing some coding rather than working on
it) but I know I'll want it eventually. I _could_ switch to dos--with a
minor loss of self respect.
I'm still curious about xpr and why it's not included in the X-
distribution. Seems like a handy program. I noticed in searching that
it's not included in RedHat either.
Your input is appreciated.
