4.3 Your Default Options

Configuration Setting: Options: options+
Give a2ps a list of command line options. options+ is any sequence of regular command line options (see section 3. Invoking a2ps).

It is the correct way to define the default behavior you expect from a2ps. If for instance you want to use Letter as medium, then use:

Options: --medium=Letter

It is exactly the same as always giving a2ps the option `--medium=Letter' at run time.

The quoting mechanism is the same as that of a shell. For instance
Options: --right-title="Page $p" --center-title="Hello World!"
Options: --title="arg 'Jack said \\\"hi\\\"' has double quotes"
