Euro - Symbol with enscript

Hello List,
I am new in this forum. I have a problem with enscript and I am searching for about one year for a solution:

We are using enscript and ghostscript to create pdf-Documents with our Software running on linux server.

To print the EURO Symbol on a fixed place I can change the Font-Map

ascii 1, "ps{/StandardSymL findfont 20 scalefont setfont}",

then I print ascii 160 for the Euro-Symbol.

But pinting free text I can not change the Font-Map for only one letter and instead of I will see only \200 in my pdf document

I hope you will uinderstand my problem.

Any idea are welcome

kind regards

We had the same problem many years back, even before keyboards were equipped with the euro symbol, and we settled for the 3 letter ISO code, which is also offers wide portability. See here for the codes: ISO 4217 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
