Cannot get a2ps to print landscape.

Sorry to bother you with this question.  I’m new at using a2ps so there must be something I’m doing wrong.

I’m running version 4.13 on a SUN Solaris computer.  I’m trying to print a file that is 132 columns wide, one page per sheet of paper without a header.

I’ve tried both of these commands


a2ps -r -1 -l132 -B P.log

a2ps --landscape -1 -l132 -B P.log


Both give me portrait instead.


If I choose the option of -2 instead of -1, 2 pages are printed on one sheet in landscape mode, but I only want one page per sheet.


Could you tell me what I’m doing wrong?  I just don’t see it.


Thank you very much.

Jim Gardner.
