download

/usr/lib/lp/postscript/download [options ] [files ]

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 make additional fonts available when printing a PostScript file. download determines which fonts to add by processing 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:

Times-Bold	times/bold
Times-Italic	times/italic
Times-Roman	times/roman

Filenames that begin with a slash are used verbatim. Otherwise, they are taken to be relative to the host font directory.

Options

-

Read the standard input.

-f

Search the entire PostScript file instead of just the header comments. Header comments such as %%DocumentFonts: (atend) 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 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 the previous option), the filename is appended to the fontdir specified by -H . Without -H , the default is /usr/lib/lp/postscript .

-p printer

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