       ogonkify [-p procset] [-e encoding] [-r Old=New] [-a] [-c]
       [-h] [-t] [-A] [-C] [-H] [-T] [-AT]  [-CT]  [-ATH]  [-CTH]
       [-E]  [-N] [-M] [-mp] [-SO] [-AX] [-F] [-RS] [--] file ...


       ogonkify does various munging of PostScript files  related
       to  printing  in  different languages.  Its main use is to
       filter the output of Netscape, Mosaic and  other  programs
       in order to print in languages that don't use the standard
       Western-European encoding (ISO 8859-1).


       Installation  instructions  are  provided  in   the   file
       INSTALL.   Assuming  the  installation  has been correctly
       completed, save  the  PostScript  output  of  Netscape  or
       Mosaic to a file, say output.ps.  Then print it using

              % ogonkify -AT -N output.ps | lpr

       in the case of Netscape, or

              % ogonkify -AT -M output.ps | lpr

       in the case of Mosaic.

       You  may  want to change the -AT option to -CT in order to
       use a high quality Courier font from IBM (at the price  of
       slower printing).

       An  alternative  way  to print from Netscape is to set the
       printing command in the printing dialog box to:

              ogonkify -AT -N | lpr

       For more details, see the USAGE section below.


       -p     Includes the specified procset in the output  file.

       -e     Set the encoding of the output. Defaults to L2 (ISO
              8859-2, a.k.a. ISO Latin-2). Other possible  values
              are  L1  (ISO  8859-1, a.k.a. ISO Latin-1), L3 (ISO
              8859-3, a.k.a. ISO Latin-3), L4 (ISO 8859-4, a.k.a.
              ISO  Latin-4), L5 (ISO 8859-9, a.k.a. ISO Latin-5),
              L6 (ISO  8859-10,  a.k.a.  ISO  Latin-6),  L7  (ISO
              8859-13,  a.k.a.  ISO  Latin-7),  L9  (ISO 8859-15,
              fonts to the printer.

       -c     Do the right font remappings for using IBM  Courier
              in place of Adobe Courier.

       -t     Do    the   right   font   remappings   for   using
              Times-Roman-Ogonki in place of Times-Roman.

       -h     Do  the  right  font  remappings  for  using   Hel­
              vetica-Ogonki in place of Helvetica.

       -A     Like  -a  but  also  downloads  the  Courier-Ogonki

       -C     Like -c, but also downloads the IBM Courier  fonts.

       -H     Like    -h,    but    also   downloads   the   Hel­
              vetica-xxx-Ogonki fonts.

       -T     Like -t, but also  downloads  the  Times-xxx-Ogonki

       -CT    Equivalent to -C -T.

       -CTH   Equivalent to -C -T -H.

       -E     Add  the  Euro  currency sign to all standard fonts
              (use with -e L9).

       -N     Do Netscape processing.

       -M     Do Mosaic processing.

       -mp    Do mp processing.  Will not work with the -A option
              (use -C instead).

       -SO    Do StarOffice processing.


       Let us assume that you want to print a WWW page encoded in
       ISO Latin-2. Netscape stubbornly insists on printing it as
       ISO  Latin-1.  By  using  the  File->Print  command,  have
       Netscape send the output to a file, say alamakota.ps.

       As  ogonkify  is  configured  for  ISO Latin-2 by default,
       passing it the PostScript generated by Netscape will  cor­
       rect the encoding of the fonts. It is enough to do:

              % ogonkify -N <alamakota.ps | lpr

       However,  most  printers do not have fonts with the needed
       characters installed; synthetized fonts will be downloaded
       and  used instead of Courier and Times-Roman with -AT, and
       a very good Courier font from IBM will be used with:  -CT.
       The command will therefore typically be:

              % ogonkify -N -AT <alamakota.ps | lpr

       or eventually

              % ogonkify -N -CT <alamakota.ps | lpr

       Typical  usage  with  other  programs,  in the case of the
       Latin-2 encoding, is:

              % ogonkify -M -AT <alamakota.ps | lpr
              % ogonkify -mp -AT <alamakota.ps | lpr
              % ogonkify -SO -AT <alamakota.ps | lpr
              % ogonkify -AX -ATH <alamakota.ps | lpr
              % ogonkify -XF -ATH <alamakota.ps | lpr

       For the Latin-5 encoding, it would be similar:

              % ogonkify -N -AT -eL5 <alamakota.ps | lpr

       while for the Latin-9 (Latin-0) encoding  it  would  typi­
       cally be

              % ogonkify -N -E -eL9 <alamkota.ps | lpr


       Characters  with an `ogonek' should be constructed differ­
       ently (for instance, the `ogonek' used with an `a'  should
       be differently shaped than the one used with an `e'.)


       Much of the composite character data have been provided by
       Primoz Peterlin, H. Turgut Uyar, Ricardas  Cepas,  Kristof
       Petrovay and Jan Prikryl.

       Jacek   Pliszka   provided  the  support  for  StarOffice.
       Andrzej Baginski provided the support for ApplixWare.

       Markku Rossi wrote  genscript  and  provided  many  useful
       encoding vectors with the distribution.

       Throughout   writing  the  Postscript  code,  I  used  the
       ghostscript interpreter, by Peter Deutsch.

       Larry Wall wrote perl, the syntax and semantics  of  which
       are a never ending source of puzzlement.
