 NAME
      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 starting with two dashes (`-').  A summary of options is

      --markup
           Interpret the text as pango markup.

      --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.
