     The postdaisy filter translates Diablo 630 daisy-wheel files
     into  PostScript and writes the results on the standard out-
     put. If no files are specified, or if - is one of the  input
     files, the standard input is read.


     -c num
           Print num copies of each page.  By  default  only  one
           copy is printed.

     -f name
           Print files using font name. Any PostScript  font  can
           be  used,  although  the best results will be obtained
           only with constant-width fonts. The  default  font  is

     -h num
           Set the initial horizontal motion index to num. Deter-
           mines  the  character  advance  and  the default point
           size, unless the -s option is  used.  The  default  is

     -m num
           Magnify each logical page by the factor num. Pages are
           scaled  uniformly  about  the origin, which is located
           near the upper left corner of each page.  The  default
           magnification is  1.0.

     -n num
           Print num logical pages on each piece of paper,  where
           num  can  be  any positive integer. By default, num is
           set to  1.

     -o list
           Print pages whose numbers  are  given  in  the  comma-
           separated list. The list contains single numbers N and
           ranges N1 - N2. A missing N1 means the lowest numbered
           page,  a  missing N2 means the highest. The page range
           is an expression of logical pages rather than physical
           sheets  of paper. For example, if you are printing two
           logical pages to a sheet, and you specified a range of
           4,  then  two  sheets of paper would print, containing
           four page layouts. If you specified a  page  range  of
           3-4,  when  requesting  two  logical pages to a sheet;
           then only page 3 and page 4 layouts would  print,  and
           they would appear on one physical sheet of paper.

     -p mode
           Print files in either portrait or landscape mode. Only
           the  first  character  of  mode  is  significant.  The
           default mode is portrait.

     -r num
           Selects carriage return and line feed behavior. If num
           is  1, a line feed generates a carriage return. If num
           is 2, a carriage return generates a line feed. Setting
           num to 3 enables both modes.

     -s num
           Use point size num instead of the default value set by
           the initial horizontal motion index.

     -v num
           Set the initial vertical  motion  index  to  num.  The
           default is  8.

     -x num
           Translate the origin num inches along the  positive  x
           axis.  The  default  coordinate  system has the origin
           fixed near the upper left corner  of  the  page,  with
           positive  x to the right and positive y down the page.
           Positive  num  moves  everything  right.  The  default
           offset is  0.25 inches.

     -y num
           Translate the origin num inches along the  positive  y
           axis. Positive num moves text up the page. The default
           offset is  -0.25 inches.
