A2PS 4.13 has been ported to AmigaOS4 by Erik Kristiansson. A2PS stands for "Any 2 Postscript" and can convert anything to postscript (as long as you have the right tools). A2PS is distributed according to the GNU General Public License. Look here for A2PSGUI screenshots.

Hey, nice!

Actually, I once made a few modifications to a2ps myself, which I'm using daily on my own system and almost forgot about. I should probably have another look at them and see if they would be worth having included in Erik's port -- and GUI.

One of them was an option to override the "Page" literal for the page header, which makes it possible to use your own language ("Side" is my choice ).

Best regards,

Brilliant work m8.

Life is fragile enough, why use windows on top of that?

Sounds very interesting. Have you talked to the A2PS maintainers about it? It would probably be better in a future perspective if it was added to the a2ps code and not just to my port.


The version that is on os4depot has printing support turned off. The reason for this that I dont have a PS printer myself so I cant test my code. Therefore I'm looking for people that have a parallell PS-printer connected to their A1 and that want to help me test some stuff. Send me a mail if you are interested.

I have HPLaserJet 4MPlus attached to my 68k Amiga at home in other town, so if you want you can send me to test it.
