Printing to Save Paper
(with creepy voice) All hope abandon ye who
leaves the printer in SIMPLEX MODE
To make booklets:
If you want to create a booklet out of any postscript
file to be printed on the demo printer, use the program
unix> makebook file.ps
unix> file.ps file.book.ps
When files are too big (more than 40 pages), it's better to
generate a printout consisting
of several smaller booklets. Otherwise there will be too many pages to
fold easily. The booklets can then be binded with the binding machine
upstairs to generate a nice DEMO book. Use
makebook file.ps -sN where N is the number of pages
per booklet (must be a multiple of four; suggested=16). Example:
unix> makebook file.ps -s16
unix> lpr -Pdemo -s file.book.ps
NEW! Print books directly to the printer!
unix> booklpr [-s] [-s16] -Pprinter
(i.e., same syntax as lpr).
makebook and lpr in one command.
To print two document pages per paper page face (sgi only):
The programm is ~miguel/bin/maketwopage.
unix> maketwopage file.ps
unix> file.ps file.twopage.ps
(*) Located at /home/p/demo/demo/bin.IRIX or
/home/p/demo/demo/bin.Linux. You should have the following:
set path=($path /home/p/demo/demo/bin.`uname`)
on your .login file so the correct demo binaries directory is
included in your path when you start a shell in order to use
this and other demo-installed applications.
