Neoware/Unix Print/Font alteration

P: 4
Hi all,

My problem is that I have generated a text file on unix which I want to print on a neoware(Neolinux) box.

The problem is that the line length is 2 big so when I print it the text is wrapped around.In windows we have the option of reducing font and printing.Is there any such option available on Unix..?


The files to be printed will be placed on a Neoware machine ( a thin linux client ) which does not support any Unix print command except lpr (doesnt support a2ps/ensript/lp..)---> what I am looking for is a solution wherein I can either reduce the file font before hand on the unix machine and then send it to the Neoware for printing, or send the file to Neoware and print with a different font over there (though I tried all the lpr options on neoware..they arent working including page-left/landscape/lpi/cpi..etc)


Is there no way of reformatting the text on Unix, like decreasing file font and saving it in a new file? Or how to install a2ps command on neoware..?


Could someone suggest the best way for it..??
