The task :
Using multiple commands like :
gdisk -l $SOME_DISK >> $SOME_FILE
I generate some text file.
For readiness I must insert page break.
When the program is finished I want to convert the final text file to a pdf file.
When finished, I got two files : One text file and One pdf file.
When printing both, you cannot differentiate them.
What I have done :
I build a single groff base file by copying data :
First I initialize the base document with :
#echo ".nf" > "$BASE_FILE" echo ".sp 1" >> "$BASE_FILE" echo "PROGRAM : $MY_PROG" >> "$BASE_FILE" echo ".sp 1" >> "$BASE_FILE"
Then I fill the base file with the result of :
while true ; doecho "$SOME_TEXT_AS_TITLE" >> "$BASE_FILE" gdisk -l $SOME_DISK >> $BASE_FILE if [[ "$FLAG_SET_PAGE_BREAK" == "true" ]] ; thenecho ".bp" >> "$BASE_FILE" fi if [[ "$IS_FINISHED" == "true" ]] ; thenbreak fi done echo ".ex" >> "$BASE_FILE"
Then I build the pdf file like this :
ENSCRIPT="--no-header --font=$CUR_FONT --word-wrap" export ENSCRIPT /usr/bin/enscript -p"$TEMP_FILE" "$BASE_FILE" /usr/bin/ps2pdf "$TEMP_FILE" "$FILE_OUT_PDF"
The page break is always at line 67.
I tried to change page length with :
With different value but the page break arise always at the same place.
So How to change the page break.
I want to use different fonts type and size.
This will certainly affect the presentation of the document.
How to fix the problem of page breaks.
How to set page length by lines/per page ?
With enscript you can explicitly set page format, font, .....
This may contradict the presentation of the document generated by groff.
I have look after hundreds of web page and I have not found a good tutorial to help me is that task that should be simple.
Any help is welcome.
