       lp - PostScript preprocessors

       These  programs	are part of the lp(1) suite.  Each corresponds to a process in the -ppro-
       cess option of lp and exists as an rc(1) script in /sys/lib/lp/process  that  provides  an
       interface to a PostScript conversion program in /$cputype/bin/aux.  The list of processors
       follows; after each description is a bracketed list of lp options to which  the	processor

	      is  the default processor.  It uses file(1) to determine the type of input and exe-
	      cutes the correct processor for a given (input, printer) pair.

       post   passes PostScript through, adding option patches for paper tray information.   This
	      does not always work with PostScript generated on other systems.

       noproc passes files through untouched.

       ppost  converts UTF text to PostScript.	[DLcfilmnorxy]

	      converts tex(1) output to PostScript.  [Lcinor]

       g3post converts CCITT Group 3 FAX data to PostScript.

	      converts a Plan 9 bitmap such as /dev/window to PostScript.  [Lm]

	      converts troff(1) output for device UTF (the default) to PostScript.  [DLcimnorxy]

       hpost  adds  a  header page to the beginning of a PostScript printer job so that it may be
	      separated from other jobs in the output bin.  The header has the image of the job's
	      owner  from  the	directory  of faces (see face(6)).  Page reversal is also done in
	      this processor.



       The file command is not always smart enough to deal with certain file  types.   There  are
       PostScript conversion programs that do not have processors to drive them.
