print multiple pages per sheet on PostScript printer

Mpage reads plain text files or PostScript documents and prints them on a PostScript printer with the text reduced in size so that several pages appear on one sheet of paper. This is useful for viewing large printouts on a small amount of paper. Uses ISO 8859.1 to print 8-bit characters.
Package version:2.5-6


This is a fix to mpage that makes it work with ArborText called "mfix".

To compile it just type: 

cc mfix.c -o mfix

To use this as a fix to mpage, just pipe the mpage output through stdin and it will
send the corrected output to stdio.. 

For example, try it on the file "", by typing :

mpage -2 -P | mfix | lpr

and the file should be sent to the printer..

Note: This program mig
