PSIF(8)			    System Manager's Manual		       PSIF(8)

NAME
       psif - PostScript input filter splitter for lpr

SYNOPSIS
       psif [ args...  ]

DESCRIPTION
       psif    executes	   either   /usr/local/libexec/psif-ps	 or   /usr/lo-
       cal/libexec/psif-text according to whether or not the first two charac-
       ters  of	its standard input are %!.  psif will arrange that the process
       that it executes	sees the same standard input that  it  did,  and  will
       pass the	process	the same arguments that	it received.

       Usually	psif  will  be	specified as the value of if capability	in the
       printcap	entry for a PostScript	printer;  /usr/local/libexec/psif-text
       will  be	 a  shell script that runs a text to PostScript	filter such as
       textps(1), followed by  a  PostScript  page  reversal  filter  such  as
       psrev(1)	(only needed for PostScript printers that stack	face up), fol-
       lowed by	PostScript communication filter	 such  as  lprps(8);  /usr/lo-
       cal/libexec/psif-ps  will  be  similar  except that it will not run the
       text to PostScript filter.

FILES
       /usr/local/libexec/psif-text   Filter for text files.

       /usr/local/libexec/psif-ps     Filter for PostScript files.

SEE ALSO
       textps(1), psrev(1), printcap(5), lprps(8)
