Problems with a2ps

Dear Gnu.Org,

I am having a few problems with a2ps and am hoping you will be able to help
me. The project I am working on collects data from various devices
overnight. After processing the data I need to generate a number of status

The first issue relates to formatting. I wish to print the reports in 132
column landscape mode. However when I try and do this I get two reduced A4
(portrait) pages per sheet! Not quite what I was after. I am unable to find
an option to generate one page per sheet.

The other problem is that the command:-

a2ps -r --chars-per-line=132  Record_Rpt

works correctly (ignoring the formatting problem) in the directory
containing the report. However if I run this from a shell script specifying
a full pathname, /usr/michael/POLL/log/Record_Rpt, it responds with:-

[/usr/Michael/POLL/log/Record_Rpt (binary): ignored]
[No output produced]

Thankyou in anticipation.

Yours sincerely,

Michael Hopprich
