8.2 Page Device Options

Page device is a PostScript level 2 feature that offers an uniform interface to control the printer's output device. a2ps protects all page device options inside an if block so they have no effect in level 1 interpreters. Although all level 2 interpreters support page device, they do not have to support all page device options. For example some printers can print in duplex mode and some can not. Refer to the documentation of your printer for supported options.

Here are some usable page device options which can be selected with the `-S' option (`--setpagedevice'). For a complete listing, see PostScript Language Reference Manual (section 4.11 Device Setup in the second edition, or section 6, Device Control in the third edition).

Collate boolean

Duplex boolean
duplex (two side) printing

ManualFeed boolean
manual feed paper tray

OutputFaceUp boolean
print output `face up' or `face down'

Tumble boolean
how opposite sides are positioned in duplex printing
