apsfilt: apsfilter-5.0.1.

Apsfilter is a printer input filter. With apsfilter installed and configured, you can print many different file types (like ASCII, PostScript, and DVI, as well as compressed versions of all of these) directly with 'lpr', and apsfilter will automatically handle the conversion process on the fly. To configure apsfilter, run the SETUP program in /usr/lib/apsfilter.

enscript: GNU enscript 1.6.1

Enscript converts text files to PostScript and spools the generated output to a printer or saves it to a file. If no input files are given, enscript processes standard input. Enscript can be extended to handle different output media and it has many options for customizing printouts.

ghostscr: Ghostscript version 5.10

Preview, print and process PostScript documents on both PostScript and non-PostScript devices. If you need X11 support, you should also install the package 'gs_x11' found on the XAP series. It contains a /usr/bin/gs with support for X11.

gsfonts: Fonts for the Ghostscript interpreter/previewer.

These fonts come from ghostscript-fonts-other-5.10.tar.gz and ghostscript-fonts-std-5.10.tar.gz.

gv: gv 3.5.8

gv is a PostScript and PDF previewer. It allows users to view and navigate through PostScript and PDF documents on an X display by providing a user interface for the ghostscript interpreter. gv was written by Johannes Plass, using the source code for Tim Theisen's ghostview 1.5 as a starting point.
