4.8 Your Page Labels

In the PostScript file is dropped information on where sheets begin and end, so that post processing tools know where is the physical page 1, 2 etc. With this information can be also stored a label, i.e., a human readable text (typically the logical page numbers), which is for instance what Ghostview shows as the list of page numbers.

a2ps lets you define what you want in this field.

Configuration Setting: PageLabelFormat: format
Specify the format to use to label the PostScript pages. format can use Escapes (see section 3.2 Escapes). Two variables are predefined for this: `#{pl.short}' and `#{pl.long}'.
