NAME

  any2ps - Converts a file to mule internal code and then to PostScript	for-
  mat

SYNOPSIS

  any2ps [-in coding_system] [m2ps_options] <&lt; infile >&gt; outfile

OPTIONS

  -in coding_system
      Specifies	the coding system (in the input	file) that needs to be con-
      verted to	mule *internal*	code. By default, the input file is assumed
      to be in mule *internal* code, which means that code conversion is not
      done.

  m2ps_options
      Specifies	one or more options passed by any2ps to	the m2ps program.
      Refer to m2ps(1) for a description of these options.

OPERANDS

  infile
      Specifies	the input file to be converted to *internal* code.

  outfile
      Specifies	the output PostScript file.

DESCRIPTION

  The any2ps command is	an alternative to running the coco and m2ps programs
  separately.  Like the	programs that it invokes, any2ps is derived from
  software supplied by the Free	Software Foundation.

  The any2ps program performs the following operations:

   1.  Invokes coco to convert the input file from the specified coding	sys-
       tem to Mule internal code (called *internal* code)

   2.  Passes the converted result, along with the specified m2ps options, to
       m2ps for	processing

  The m2ps program then	generates the PostScript program file to be printed.
