RemAnsi:  Textfile 'noise' filter.

          This script removes (hopefully) any Amiga ANSI-control sequences 
          (ESC and CSI) from its input file.
          It further strips the following bytes:
          0x00..0x07,0x0b,0x0d..0x1f,0x7f..0x9f,0xff.
          It can replace formatfeeds (0x0c) by linefeeds (0x0a) and translate
          the poor man's bold/underline into something readable 
          (EG. 'A<backspace>_' wird zu 'A').

RemAnsi.Test: The beginning of less.0 with some added evil to test RemAnsi.
          Note - you do not need to remove the backspace constructs, since
          the deskjet and other printers and the cli understand them. 
          but they're just too ugly, when seen in a texteditor !


A4print4:   version 2.1 for HP Deskjet.

          + Script modified for papersize DIN A4 
          + automatic handling of two-sided printjobs (simply reinsert the 
            complete output and print backsides...)
          + partial translation of ECMA94Latin1 umlauts to the deskjet default
            charset PC8 
          + width adjustment for backspaces (double strike typewriter mode :-))
          + tab expansion
          + 4 normal pages on one side (default)    
            (each upto 89chars/line and 66 lines!)
          + adjustable formats: upto 8 (smaller) minipages on one side
          + quick mode and letter quality mode 

         Customization:
         -> for other paper formats, adjust localpagesize, psize,
            change the settings for the various layout styles (width, 
            oddleftborder) and set the command sequence isoA4='' for default
            (should be US Letter).

         the bugs in 4print however are mine :-).

Bugs / Todo:
+ both programs aren't smart about pipes - 
  but anyway - they aren't the kind of standard filter, either :-)

+ <whatever you find>



enjoy!
