10.1.3 Why Does it Print in Duplex?

Though I ask a2ps to print Simplex via `--sides', the job is printed Duplex.

Actually when you require Simplex, a2ps issues nothing, for portability reasons. Hence, if your printer is defaulted to Duplex, the job will be Duplexed. So you have to force a2ps to issue the Simplex request with `-SDuplex:false'. The user options `-=s1' and `-=simplex' have names easier to remember.

In the next version of a2ps this kind of portability problems will be fixed in a user friendly way.
