Hello Scrutinizer again.

It works how you said when the file has 128 characters per line, I'm not sure why doesn't
print when has 256 characters in each line.

Well, may you please show me an example how to separate the content of each variable by space or comma, let say:
- for variable b print characters 1 to 2, 3 to 4, 5 to 11, 12 to 27, 28 to 43.
and between each range a space.
- for variable c print characters 1 to 5, 6 to 12

If it is possible to assign to those sub ranges to a new variable could be better, because I would like to do this for presentation issue and in order to be able in the future, for example to print one or more of that ranges in decimal or with another format.

Thanks for all help so far.

paps - UTF-8 to PostScript converter using Pango SYNOPSIS
paps [options] files... DESCRIPTION
paps reads a UTF-8 encoded file and generates a PostScript language rendering of the file. The rendering is done by creating outline curves through the pango ft2 backend. OPTIONS
These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. --landscape Landscape output. Default is portrait. --columns=cl Number of columns output. Default is 1. --font=desc Set the font description. Default is Monospace 12. --rtl Do rtl layout. --paper ps Choose paper size. Known paper sizes are legal, letter, a4. Default is A4. --bottom-margin=bm Set bottom margin in postscript points (1/72 inch). Default is 36. --top-margin=tm Set top margin. Default is 36. --left-margin=lm Set left margin. Default is 36. --right-margin=rm Set right margin. Default is 36. --help Show summary of options. --header Draw page header for each page. --markup Interpret the text as pango markup. --encoding=ENCODING Assume the documentation encoding is ENCODING. --lpi Set the lines per inch. This determines the line spacing. --cpi Set the characters per inch. This is an alternative method of specifying the font size. --stretch-chars Indicates that characters should be stretched in the y-direction to fill up their vertical space. This is similar to the texttops behaviour. AUTHOR
