Name
       ansi_ps, regis_ps, tek4014_ps - datatype to PostScript translators

Syntax
       /usr/lib/lpdfilters/ansi_ps [ options ]

       /usr/lib/lpdfilters/regis_ps [ options ]

       /usr/lib/lpdfilters/tek4014_ps [ options ]

Description
       Each  translator	 reads from standard input and writes to standard out‐
       put.  If the data type is to be printed on a  PostScript	 printer  with
       specialised  support,  the  translator  is invoked by using the script.
       Refer to

       The command is the ANSI to PostScript translator.

       The command is the Regis to PostScript translator.

       The command is the Tektronix 4014 to PostScript translator.

       The ANSI translator implements DEC-STD-074-0 (Printer System  Reference
       Manual) and conforms to ISO/DSI 6429, ISO/DSI 2022, and ANSI X3.4 stan‐
       dards.  Escape sequences (documented in the translator  reference  man‐
       ual)  that  do  not  begin  with	 DEC  are taken from the ISO/DSI 6429,
       ISO/DSI 2022 and ANSI X3.4 standards.  Escape sequences that begin with
       DEC  are legal extensions of DEC-STD-074-0.  The ANSI translator imple‐
       ments a few of the escape sequences documented in these standards.

       The ANSI translator, requires a preamble to be present in the  printer,
       and  is	designed to send this preamble to the printer.	However, it is
       quicker if the TCP/IP Supporting Host Software loads  the  preamble  at
       boot time.

       For  instructions  on  what  to do to enable the TCP/IP Supporting Host
       software to load the preamble when it boots, and to disable the	trans‐
       lator from sending the preamble, see the Release Notes.
