     The mailp utility is a frontend to  the  mp(1)  program.  It
     uses different names to provide various mp options:

     mailp Prints out mail messages.

     newsp Prints out USENET news articles.

           Prints out USENET digest files.

     filep Prints out ordinary ASCII files.

           Prints out in Filofax personal organiser format.

           Prints out in Franklin Planner personal organiser for-

           Prints out in Time Manager personal organiser format.

           Prints  out  in  Time/System  International   personal
           organiser format.

     mailp and the associated  programs  read  each  filename  in
     sequence  and generate a prettified version of the contents.
     If no filename  arguments  are  provided,  mailp  reads  the
     standard input.

     mailp works in two ways. With the -D option, it will work as
     an  X  print  server client to produce the PDL of the target
     printer and spool it. With the -d or -P option, it will gen-
     erate and spool PostScript output.


     The following options are supported:

     -d printer
           Sends output to the named  printer.  Otherwise,  sends
           output to the printer named in the PRINTER environment

     -D    Generates the PDL for the target printer and spools it
           to the printer.

     -F    Instead of printing who the mail article is  for,  the
           top  header will contain who the mail article is from.
           This is a useful option for people with their own per-
           sonal printer.

     -h    Banner printing is disabled. Most of  the  information
           that  typically  appears on the banner sheet is output
           in the mp banners.

     -l    Formats output in landscape mode. Two  pages  of  text
           will be printed per sheet of paper.

     -P printer
           Same as -d option.

     -s subject
           Uses subject as the new subject for the  printout.  If
           you  are printing ordinary ASCII files which have been
           specified  on  the  command  line,  the  subject  will
           default to the name of each of these files.


     The following operand is supported:

           The name of the file to be read.


     If none of the -d, -D, or -P options is used, mailp uses the
     PRINTER  environment  variable  to  determine the printer to
     which the output from  the  mp(1)program  is  sent.  If  the
     PRINTER  variable  is  not found, the default destination is
     the PostScript printer.


     The following exit values are returned:

     0     Successful completion.

     1     An error occurred.

     The -P option, which spools the PDL directly to  the  target
     printer  in mp(1), produces PostScript when used in mailp so
     as to be backward compatible.
