Hi Henderik/Stephan

I am sorry I need to explain better:

FACT: I have tested a2ps and ps2pdf and they work (Individually)

QUESTION1: How do I print to FILE? - I only have one LPD printer installed.

QUESTION2: How do I PIPE the OUTPUT from a PRINTER to ps2pdf?

QUESTION3: Can this be done all in one?

QUESTION4: When using the CUPS interface (localhost:631) I do not see a PDF
printer to install.


Cheers and sorry for the stupid q's, but I can't for the life of me figure
out how to do a lp to a file.


My setup:







> I need to print _command-line-style_ and create a PDF file from the 

> output. How do I do this?




$ a2ps | ps2pdf


You'll of course need a2ps and the ghostscript libraries.





 First question: what is the current output format?

You could always generate some tex/latex and pump it through pdftex/pdflatex
