NAME

posttek - PostScript translator for Tektronix 4014 files

SYNOPSIS

posttek [ -c num ] [ -f name ] [ -m num ] [ -n num ] [ -o list ] [ -p mode ] [ -w num ] [ -x num ] [ -y num ] [ file ... ] /usr/lib/lp/postscript/posttek

DESCRIPTION

The posttek filter translates Tektronix 4014 graphics files into PostScript and writes the results on the standard out- put. If no files are specified, or if - is one of the input files, the standard input is read.

OPTIONS

-c num Print num copies of each page. By default, only one copy is printed. -f name Print text using font name. Any PostScript font can be used, although the best results will be obtained only with constant width fonts. The default font is Courier. -m num Magnify each logical page by the factor num. Pages are scaled uniformly about the origin which, by default, is located at the center of each page. The default magnification is 1.0. -n num Print num logical pages on each piece of paper, where num can be any positive integer. By default, num is set to 1. -o list Print pages whose numbers are given in the comma- separated list. The list contains single numbers N and ranges N1 - N2. A missing N1 means the lowest numbered page, a missing N2 means the highest. The page range is an expression of logical pages rather than physical sheets of paper. For example, if you are printing two logical pages to a sheet, and you specified a range of 4, then two sheets of paper would print, containing four page layouts. If you specified a page range of 3-4, when requesting two logical pages to a sheet; then only page 3 and page 4 layouts would print, and they would appear on one physical sheet of paper. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 9 Sep 1996 1 User Commands posttek(1) -p mode Print files in either portrait or landscape mode. Only the first character of mode is significant. The default mode is landscape. -w num Set the line width used for graphics to num points, where a point is approximately 1/72 of an inch. By default, num is set to 0 points, which forces lines to be one pixel wide. -x num Translate the origin num inches along the positive x axis. The default coordinate system has the origin fixed at the center of the page, with positive x to the right and positive y up the page. Positive num moves everything right. The default offset is 0.0 inches. -y num Translate the origin num inches along the positive y axis. Positive num moves everything up the page. The default offset is 0.0.

NOTES

The default line width is too small for write-white print engines, such as the one used by the PS-2400. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 9 Sep 1996 3
