SYNOPSIS
       paperconf  [ [ -p ] paper | -d |	-a ] [ -z ] [ -n | -N ]	[ -s | -w | -h
       ] [ -c |	-m | -i	]

DESCRIPTION
       paperconf prints	information about a given paper.  The information that
       can  be	obtained  is  the name of the paper, its size and its width or
       height.	When called without arguments, paperconf prints	 the  name  of
       the  system-  or	 user-specified	paper, obtained	by looking in order at
       the PAPERSIZE environment variable, at the contents of the file	speci-
       fied  by	 the PAPERCONF environment variable, at	the contents of	${pre-
       fix}/etc/papersize or by	using letter as	a fall-back value if  none  of
       the other alternatives are successful.  By default, width and height of
       the paper are printed in	PostScript points.
