GNU Enscript

Converts ASCII files to PostScript

Enscript converts ASCII files to PostScript and stores generated output to a file or sends it directly to the printer. It includes features for "pretty-printing" (language sensitive code highlighting) in several programming languages. It supports ten different input encodings, Adobe Font Metrics files, and user defined fancy headers. AFM files for the most common PostScript fonts are included in the distribution; the program itself can download PostScript fonts. Other features include language sensitive highlighting, N-up printing, inlined EPS images, comments, and the ability to change body color and font on the fly.
