NAME
       postdaisy - PostScript translator for Diablo 630 daisy-wheel files

SYNOPSIS
       postdaisy   [-c num]  [-f num]  [-h num]  [-m num]  [-n num]  [-o list]
       [-p mode] [-r num] [-s num] [-v num ] [-x num] [-y num] [file...]

       /usr/lib/lp/postscript/postdaisy

DESCRIPTION
       The postdaisy filter translates Diablo 630 daisy-wheel files into Post-
       Script  and  writes the results on the standard output. If no files are
       specified, or if - is one of the input files,  the  standard  input  is
       read.

OPTIONS
       -c num   Print  num  copies  of  each page. By default only one copy is
                printed.



       -f name  Print files using font name. Any PostScript font can be  used,
                although the best results will be obtained only with constant-
                width fonts. The default font is Courier.



       -h num   Set the initial horizontal motion index to num. Determines the
                character  advance  and  the default point size, unless the -s
                option is used. The default is  12.



       -m num   Magnify each logical page by the factor num. Pages are  scaled
                uniformly  about  the  origin, which is located near the upper
                left corner of each page. The default magnification is  1.0.



       -n num   Print num logical pages on each piece of paper, where num  can
                be any positive integer. By default, num is set to  1.



       -o list  Print  pages  whose  numbers  are given in the comma-separated
                list. The list contains single numbers N and ranges N1 - N2. A
                missing  N1 means the lowest numbered page, a missing N2 means
                the highest. The page range is an expression of logical  pages
                rather  than physical sheets of paper. For example, if you are
                printing two logical pages to a sheet,  and  you  specified  a
                range  of  4, then two sheets of paper would print, containing
                four page layouts. If you specified a page range of 3-4,  when
                requesting  two logical pages to a sheet; then only page 3 and
                page 4 layouts would print, and they would appear on one phys-
                ical sheet of paper.



       -p mode  Print  files  in  either  portrait or landscape mode. Only the
                first character of mode is significant. The  default  mode  is
                portrait.



       -r num   Selects carriage return and line feed behavior. If num is 1, a
                line feed generates a carriage return. If num is 2, a carriage
                return  generates  a  line feed. Setting num to 3 enables both
                modes.



       -s num   Use point size num instead of the default  value  set  by  the
                initial horizontal motion index.



       -v num   Set  the  initial vertical motion index to num. The default is
                8.



       -x num   Translate the origin num inches along the positive x axis. The
                default  coordinate system has the origin fixed near the upper
                left corner of the page, with positive x to the right and pos-
                itive  y  down  the page. Positive num moves everything right.
                The default offset is  0.25 inches.



       -y num   Translate the origin num inches along  the  positive  y  axis.
                Positive  num  moves  text  up the page. The default offset is
                -0.25 inches.



EXIT STATUS
       The following exit values are returned:

       0               Successful completion.



       non-zero        An error occurred.
