`PreScript' has been designed in conjunction with a2ps. Since bold
sequences, special characters etc. were implemented in a2ps, we thought
it would be good to allow direct access to those features: `PreScript'
became an input language for a2ps, where special font treatments are
specified in an `ssh' syntax (Note: Style Sheets Implementation).
The main advantages for using `PreScript' are:
- it is fairly simple,
- a2ps is small and easy to install, hence it is available on every
It can be a good candidate for generation of PostScript output
(syntactic pretty-printers, generation of various reports etc.).
