General Purpose PostScript Generating Utility
10.1.5 Why Does it Print Junk?
What I get on the printer is long and incomprehensible. It does not
seem to correspond to what I wanted to print.
You are probably printing a PostScript file or equivalent. Try to print
with `-Z': a2ps will try to do his best to find what is the
program that can help you (see section 4.10 Your Delegations). In case of doubt,
don't hesitate to save into a file, and check the content with
Ghostview, or equivalent:
$ a2ps my_weird_file -Z -o mwf.ps
$ gv mwf.ps
If your a2ps is correctly installed, you can use the `display'
$ a2ps my_weird_file -Z -P display
If it is incorrect, ask for help around you.
