       html2ps - convert HTML to PostScript

       html2ps	[  -2cdDFghHLnORtTuUv  ]  [  -b  URL  ]  [  -C	string	]  [  -e  encoding ] [ -f
       file[:file[:...]]  ] [ -i num ] [ -k file ] [ -l lang ] [ -m num ] [ -M num ] [ -N num ] [
       -o file ] [ -r path ] [ -s num ] [ -S string ] [ -W string ] [ -x num ] [ URL|file ]

       The  program  html2ps converts HTML to PostScript. The HTML code can be retrieved from one
       or more URL:s or local files, specified as parameters on the command line.  If no  parame-
       ter is given, html2ps reads from standard input.

       Note:  To  avoid  unnecessary  network traffic, one can rebuild an already generated Post-
       Script file with new options. This is done by running html2ps with the  new  options,  and
       with the old PostScript file as input (not applicable for all options).

       All options have a short (case sensitive), and a long (case insensitive) form.

       -2 --twoup
	      Two column (2-up) output. The default is one column per page.

       -b URL --base URL
	      Use  URL as a base to expand relative references for in-line images. This is useful
	      if you have downloaded a document to a local file.  The URL should then be the  URL
	      of the original document.

       -c --check
	      Check  the  syntax of the HTML file (using an external syntax checker). The default
	      is to not make a syntax check.

       -C string --toc string
	      Generate a table of contents (ToC). The value should be a string consisting of  one
	      of the letters 'f', 'h', or 't', optionally combined with the letter 'b':

	      b      The ToC will be printed first. This requires that Ghostscript is installed.
	      f      The ToC will be generated from the links in the converted document.
	      h      The  ToC  will  be generated from headings and titles in the converted docu-
		     ments. Note that if the document author for some strange reason  has  chosen
		     to  use  some  other  means to represent the headings than the HTML elements
		     H1,...,H6, you are out of luck!
	      t      The ToC will be generated from links having the  attribute  rev=TOC  in  the
		     converted document.

       -d --debug
	      Generate	debugging  information.  You should always use this option when reporting
	      problems with html2ps.

       -D --dsc --DSC
	      Generate DSC compliant PostScript. This requires Ghostscript  and  can  take  quite
	      some  time  to do. Note that a PostScript file generated with this option cannot be
	      used as input to html2ps for reformatting later.

       -e encoding --encoding encoding
	      The document encoding. Currently recognized values are ISO-8859-1,  EUC-JP,  SHIFT-
	      JIS,  and  ISO-2022-JP  (other  EUC-xx  encodings  may  also  work). The default is

       -f file[:file[:...]] --rcfile file[:file[:...]]
	      A colon separated list of configuration file names to use instead  of  the  default
	      personal	configuration  file $HOME/.html2psrc.  Definitions made in one file over-
	      ride definitions in previous files (the last file in the list  has  highest  prece-
	      dence).  An empty file name (as in ':file', 'file1::file3', or 'file:') will expand
	      to the default personal file. The environment variable HTML2PSPATH is used to spec-
	      ify  the	directories where to search for these files. (Note: this is only supposed
	      to be used on the command line, not in a configuration file.)

       -F --frame
	      Draw a frame around the text on each page. The default is to not draw a frame.

       -g --grayscale
	      Convert colour images to grayscale images. Note that the PostScript  file  will  be
	      smaller  when  the  images  are  converted to grayscale. The default is to generate
	      colour images.

       -h --help
	      Show usage information.

       -H --hyphenate
	      Hyphenate the text. This requires TeX hyphenation pattern files.

       -i num --scaleimage num
	      Scale in-line images with a factor num The default is 1.

       -k file --cookie file
	      Enable cookie support, using a netscape formatted  cookie  file  (requires  libwww-

       -l lang --language lang
	      Specifies the language of the document (overrides an eventual LANG attribute of the
	      BODY   element).	  The	language   should   be	 given	 according   to   RFC1766
	      (ftp://ftp.nordu.net/rfc/rfc1766.txt)		and	       ISO	      639

       -L --landscape
	      Generate code for printing in landscape mode. The default is portrait mode.

       -m num --scalemath num
	      Scale mathematical formulas with a factor num The default is 1.

       -M num --mainchapter num
	      Specifies the start number for automatic numbering of headings (by setting the seq-
	      number parameter), the default is 1.

       -n --number
	      Insert page numbers. The default is to not number the pages.

       -N num --startno num
	      Specifies the starting page number, the default is 1.

       -o file --output file
	      Write the PostScript code to file.  The default is to write to standard output.

       -O --original
	      Use  PostScript  original images if they exist. For example, if a document contains
	      an image figure.gif, and an encapsulated PostScript file named figure.ps exists  in
	      the  same  directory,  that  file will be use instead. This only work for documents
	      read as local files. Note: if the PostScript  file  is  large  or  contains  bitmap
	      images,  this must be combined with the -D option. In HTML 4.0 this can be achieved
	      in a much better way with:

	      <OBJECT data="figure.ps" type="application/postscript">
	      <OBJECT data="figure.gif" type="image/gif">
	      <PRE>[Maybe some ASCII art for text browsers]</PRE>

       -r path --rootdir path
	      When a document is read from a local file, this value specifies  a  base	directory
	      for  resolving  relative	links  starting  with "/".  Typically, this should be the
	      directory where your web server's home page resides.

       -R --xref
	      Insert cross references at every link to within the set of converted documents.

       -s num --scaledoc num
	      Scale the entire document with a factor num The default is 1.

       -S string --style string
	      This option complements/overrides definitions made in the configuration files.  The
	      string  must  follow the configuration file syntax. (Note: this is only supposed to
	      be used on the command line, not in a configuration file.)

       -t --titlepage
	      Generate a title page. The default is to not generate one.

       -T --text
	      Text mode, ignore images. The default is to include the images.

       -u --underline
	      Underline text that constitutes a hypertext link. The default is to not underline.

       -U --colour
	      Produce colour output for text and background,  when  specified.	 The  default  is
	      black text on white background (mnemonic: coloUr ;-).

       -v --version
	      Print information about the current version of html2ps.

       -W string --web string
	      Process  a  web of documents by recursively retrieve and convert documents that are
	      referenced with hyperlinks. When dealing with remote documents it will of course be
	      necessary  to impose restrictions, to avoid downloading the entire web... The value
	      should be a string consisting of one of the letters 'a', 'b',  'l',  'r',  or  's',
	      optionally  combined  with  a  combination  of the letters 'p', 'L', and a positive

	      a      Follow all links.
	      b      Follow only links to within the same directory, or below, as the start docu-
	      l      Follow only links specified with "<LINK rel=NEXT>" in the document.
	      p      Prompt  for  each	remote	document. This mode will automatically be entered
		     after the first 50 documents.
	      r      Follow only relative links.
	      s      Follow only links to within the same server as the start document.
	      L      With this option, the order in which the documents are  processed	will  be:
		     first  all top level documents, then the documents linked to from these etc.
		     For example, if the document A has links to B and C, and B has a link to  D,
		     the  order  will  be A-B-C-D.  By default, each document will be followed by
		     the first document it links to etc; so the default order for the example  is
	      #      A	positive  integer giving the number of recursive levels. The default is 4
		     (when the option is present).

       -x num --duplex num
	      Generate postscript code for single or double sided printing.   No  default,  valid
	      values are:

	      0      Single sided.
	      1      Double sided.
	      2      Double sided, opposite page reversed (tumble mode).

       (This is incomplete.)

       The  CELLSPACING  attribute  of	the  TABLE element is not implemented as described in the
       specification; instead the value of the CELLPADDING attribute is  increased  by	half  the
       value of CELLSPACING.

       Rendering  HTML	tables well is a non-trivial task. For "real" tables, that is representa-
       tion of tabular data, html2ps usually generates reasonably good output.	When  tables  are
       used  for layout purposes, the result varies from good to useless. This is because a table
       cell is never broken across pages. So if a table contains a cell with a	lot  of  content,
       the  entire  table  may have to be scaled down in size in order to make this cell fit on a
       single page. Sometimes this may even result in unreadable output.

       Page breaks are occasionally done in bad places: for example directly after a (long) head-
       ing, and before the last line in a paragraph.

	      This  variable  specifies  the  directories  to  search for configuration files. It
	      should be a colon separated list of directory names. Use a dot '.'  to  denote  the
	      current  directory. An empty directory name (as in ':dir', 'dir1::dir3', or 'dir:')
	      will expand to the directory where the global configuration file	is.  The  default
	      value  is  '.:',	that  is: search the current directory first, and then the global

	      User configuration file, see html2psrc(5).

       html2psrc(5), perl(1), setlocale(3), strftime(3), weblint(1)
