Many applications that generate PostScript print files follow the convention of making the first two characters of the PostScript file %! which identifies the print file as a PostScript print file.

Any of the following commands now convert an ASCII file to a PostScript file and print it on a PostScript printer. To convert myfile.ascii , you would type any of the following at the command line:
qprt -Pps myfile.ps myfile.ascii
lpr -Pps myfile.ps myfile.ascii
lp -dps myfile.ps myfile.acsii
where ps is a PostScript print queue.
