Enscript does not support UTF-8 formatted text files, so it's not usable in
One solution, "is to use paps, instead of Enscript, for converting UTF-8
encoded text to PostScript."
Another (which I prefer) solution is to send to printer like this (with "n"
being the 8859 extension number):
$ iconv -f UTF-8 -t ISO-8859-n file-UTF8.txt | enscript --encoding=8859n |
Thanks to Martin Paredes for this suggestion.
Perhaps this information or the appropriate enscript conversion code for
psif could be included in the Handbook
