10.2.2 How Can I Print stdin?

a2ps prints the standard input if you give no file name, or if you gave `-' as file name. Automatic style selection is of course much weaker: without the file name, a2ps can only get file(1)'s opinion (see section 5.4 Style Sheet Files). In general it means most delegations are safe, but there will probably be no pretty-printing.

`You' can supply a name to the standard input (`--stdin=name') with which it could guess the language.
