B.1 History

The initial version was a shell program written by Evan Kirshenbaum. It was very slow and contained many bugs.

A new version was written in C by Miguel Santana to improve execution speed and portability. Many new features and improvements have been added since this first version. Many contributions (changes, fixes, ideas) were done by a2ps users in order to improve it.

From the latest version from Miguel Santana (4.3), Emmanuel Briot implemented bold faces for keywords in Ada, C and C++.

From that version, Akim Demaille generalized the pretty-printing capabilities, implemented more languages support, and other features.
