Hi.

found this 2 apps by googling:

1.) nenscript

converts plain ascii to PostScript, platform: Linux
nenscript is a print filter. It can take ASCII input and format it into
PostScript output and at the same time can do nice transformations like
putting 2 ASCII pages on one physical page (side by side).

Requires
* ld-linux.so.2
* libc.so.6

Copyright: BSD

I have used a very long time ago to print 4 pages of text a one single sheet of paper Smile If I remember right, it was a simple C program..

2.) txtbdf2ps

txtbdf2ps is a small, self-contained Perl script that converts ASCII text files into Postscript
using a given bitmap (BDF) font. (The character bitmaps are embedded into the PS file as a Type 3
font.) The script can be used to print texts in international character sets or for proofreading
BDF fonts. Features include justified paragraphs, adjustable margins, and a slim & simple resulting
PS. Support for Unicode UTF-8 input and Unicode BDF fonts. platform: Linux license: Public Domain
source: FreshMeat

Requires
* Perl

This would mean, to include the small perl version from John Murga or
try to rewrite it in C or Tcl/Tk... Sad

PS

Hey

Thats SO cool Wink

My ISO doesn't have Abiword so this was a problem, I'll look into integrating into my CD as soon as possible.

Thanks !

Cheers
