Printing text file with PS

Printing text file with PS

Printing text file with PS

(OP)
I have a commercial program that outputs simle text pages, each page is columns of numbers. The format of each page is identical, just the numbers are different.  I would like to read this file and apply some basic formatting, like bold and/or italic to certain text elements.  Do I insert PS commands into the file, or do I insert the text into a PS file. I am totally new at this.  Also, I eventually want to add gray shading to parts of the report, I am thinnking I can create a form to be downloaded to the printer for that.

Any help is appreciated,
Fred EMmerich

RE: Printing text file with PS

hello

You put text inside PS file, because PS has its own particuliar syntax.
If you were placing PS inside a flat file, this flat file cannot be readen by gs (or any other PS reader)

==> have a look at http://ixipage.free.fr : it can help you a lot.
