postplot - PostScript translator for plot(4B) graphics files
postplot [-c num] [-f name] [-m num] [-n num] [-o list] [-p mode]
[-w num] [-x num] [-y num] [filename...]
The postplot filter translates plot(1B) graphics filenames into Post-
Script and writes the results on the standard output. If no filenames
are specified, or if - is one of the input filenames, the standard
input is read.
The following options are supported:
-c num Print num copies of each page. By default, only one copy is
-f name Print text 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.
-m num Magnify each logical page by the factor num. Pages are scaled
uniformly about the origin which, by default, is located at
the center 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
-p mode Print filenames in either portrait or landscape mode. Only the
first character of mode is significant. The default mode is
-w num Set the line width used for graphics to num points, where a
point is approximately 1/72 of an inch. By default, num is set
to 0 points, which forces lines to be one pixel wide.
-x num Translate the origin num inches along the positive x axis. The
default coordinate system has the origin fixed at the center
of the page, with positive x to the right and positive y up
the page. Positive num moves everything right. The default
offset is 0.0 inches.
-y num Translate the origin num inches along the positive y axis.
Positive num moves everything up the page. The default offset
The following operand is supported:
filename The graphics filename to be translated
The following exit value is returned:
0 filename(s) were successfully processed.

The default line width is too small for write-white print engines, such
as the one used by the PS-2400.
