[ANNOUNCEMENT] New package: a2ps-4.12-1

This new package contains a2p, a text to Postscript formatting program,
written by Akim Demaille <> and Miguel Santana

a2ps-4.12 is a slightly older stable version that is built from vanilla
sources without any
special configuration or dependencies.

a2ps formats files for printing on a PostScript printer.

The format used is nice and compact: normally two pages on each physical
page, borders surrounding pages, headers with useful information (page
number, printing date, file name or supplied header), line numbering,
pretty-printing, symbol substitution etc. This is very useful for making
archive listings of programs or just to check your code in the bus. a2ps
supports delegations, i.e., you can safely use a2ps to print DVI,
PostScript, LaTeX, JPEG etc., even compressed.
