The columns are: LEADING-CHAR, BYTES, COLUMNS, TYPE, GRAPHIC, FINAL-CHAR, DIRECTION, DOCUMENT, BDF-FILE, and ENCODING. By modifying this file, you can specify different BDF files. You don't have to specify ENCODING for 2-byte character sets such as Chinese, Japanese, and Korean (as for Big5, you should specify 1 for ETen and 2 for HKU). .PP .SH FILES /usr/local/lib/emacs/$VERSION/etc/m2ps.ps - PostScript header file. /usr/local/lib/emacs/$VERSION/etc/CHARSETS - A file which contains information of character sets and fonts. /usr/local/lib/emacs/$VERSION/etc/demo.ps - PostScript file created by m2ps.
