RE: FW: Can you offer enscript.cfg file for cygwin?


I found your message on cygwin ( )
but could not reply there.  I followed your advisor and made my
enscript worked!!!

I added one line on my cshrc.csh
setenv PRINTER  \\\\RW-PRT-02\\HP5SI-2
and use the default /etc/enscript.cfg

The only trouble I have is that for every job I printed,
I received an extra page with such contents:

PostScript Error Handler
Offending Command =
Error = nametype :undefined
Stack =

Any idea?
How to escape such error message?
