Add a font to the beginning of one or more PostScript files . By adding a font name directly to a PostScript specification, this command can be used to make additional fonts available when printing a PostScript file. Fonts are added in the form of PostScript comments that begin with %%DocumentFonts: , followed by a list of PostScript font names. download loads the fonts whose names are listed in a map table. This table links PostScript names with the system file that contains the font definition. A map table for the Times font family might look like this:






Read the standard input.


Search the entire PostScript file instead of just the header comments. Header comments such as %%DocumentFonts: (atend) will redirect download to the end of the file. Use this option when such comments aren't present.

-H fontdir

Use fontdir as the directory in which font definition files are to be searched (default is /usr/lib/lp/postscript ).

-m table

Use map table specified by file table . A leading / in table indicates an absolute pathname; otherwise (as in example above), the filename is appended to the fontdir specified by -H .

-p printer

Normally, download loads fonts that reside on the host machine. With this option, download will first check for fonts that reside on printer (by looking at /etc/lp/printers/ printer /residentfonts ).
