psresize(1) -- Linux man page

 

NAME

psresize - multiple pages per sheet  

SYNOPSIS

psresize [ -wwidth ] [ -hheight ] [ -ppaper ] [ -Wwidth ] [ -Hheight ] [ -Ppaper ] [ -q ] [ infile [ outfile ] ]  

DESCRIPTION

Psresize rescales and centres a document on a different size of paper. The input PostScript file should follow the Adobe Document Structuring Conventions.

The -w option gives the output paper width, and the -h option gives the output paper height, normally specified in cm or in to convert PostScript's points (1/72 of an inch) to centimeters or inches. The -p option can be used as an alternative, to set the output paper size to a3, a4, a5, b5, letter, legal, tabloid, statement, executive, folio, quarto, 10x24 or _glibc, where latter one means the format of the current locale. The default output paper size is _glibc.

The -W option gives the input paper width, and the -H option gives the input paper height. The -P option can be used as an alternative, to set the input paper size. The default input paper size is _glibc.

Psresize normally prints the page numbers of the pages output; the -q option suppresses this.  

EXAMPLES

The following command can be used to convert a document on A4 size paper to letter size paper:

psresize -PA4 -pletter in.ps out.ps

 

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

LC_ALL, LC_PAPER
These variables are specifying the papertype when used paper is _glibc. For details see the locale(7) manpage.
