psmandup - print duplex on non duplex printers
Tries to produce a version of the PostScript FILE to print in manual
- -h, --help
display this help and exit
- -v, --version
display version information and exit
- -q, --quiet
don't print informational messages
- -o, --output=FILE
save result in FILE. If FILE is `-', send to stdout
- -n, --no-fix
don't call fixps to fix PS problems in FILE
- -f, --front
output only the front pages (recto) on the regular
- -b, --back
output only the back pages (verso) on the manual
Produced output is meant for PS level 2 printers which don't support
Duplex printing, but support Manual Feed. Once the first set of pages
is printed (odd pages), manual feed is asked: introduce the odd pages
to print the even pages on the other side.
Because there is usually a short time out for manually fed jobs, you
should really be next to the printer. If ever the time out expired,
use the option -b to send only the missing part.
Environment variables FIXPS, PSSELECT and PSSET, if defined, are used
to find the tools.
