postplot(1)                      User Commands                     postplot(1)



NAME
       postplot - PostScript translator for plot(4B) graphics files

SYNOPSIS
       postplot  [-c num]  [-f name]  [-m num]  [-n num]  [-o list]  [-p mode]
       [-w num] [-x num] [-y num] [filename...]

       /usr/lib/lp/postscript/postplot

DESCRIPTION
       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.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

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



       -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
                the highest.



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



       -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
                is 0.0.



OPERANDS
       The following operand is supported:

       filename        The graphics filename to be translated



EXIT STATUS
       The following exit value is returned:

       0        filename(s) were successfully processed.
