       posttek - PostScript translator for Tektronix 4014 files

       posttek   [-c num]  [-f name]  [-m num]  [-n num]  [-o list]  [-p mode]
       [-w num] [-x num] [-y num] [file...]


       The posttek filter translates Tektronix 4014 graphics 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

       -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
                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

       -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.

       The following exit values are returned:

       0               Successful completion.

       non-zero        An error occurred.

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