lpr' command, you'll lose all your syntax highlighting. There is a way of solving this problem by using GNU '
For example, if you wanted to print syntax highlighted ruby code:
enscript --color=1 -Eruby your_source_code.rb
-E' flag tells enscript that the code is ruby, while '
-color' is self-explanatory. If you wanted to find out what other syntax highlightings are availabe, use this command:
enscriptis more than just that. For example, if I wanted it with line numbering, landscaped and in two-columned format (thus saving space), I can do this:
enscript --color=1 -Eruby -c2 -C1 -r -j your_source_code.rb
-c2: 2 columns
-C1: start line numbering from 1 onwards
-r: print in landscape
-j: print border around the columns
It can even generate syntax highlighted code in html, which makes it useful when you want to blog about source code:
enscript --color=1 -w html -Eruby your_source_code.rb
man page' describes it as "convert text files to PostScript, HTML, RTF, ANSI, and overstrikes" probably doesn't do it much justice, given that it's capable of doing much more; my examples have barely skimmed its surface, so I highly recommend you read more into it to find out
enscript's full capabilities.
