mpdist-3.3.2: description + notes

The mp distribution consists of two programs, mp and mptool.

The mp program will pretty print various files for you. It can be used in conjunction with a mail reading utility for producing a pretty print of your mail items. It can be used with a news reading tool to pretty print news articles. Digests can also be printed, and this version can pretty print ordinary ASCII files as well. Support for personal organiser printing was added into the last released version. There are numerous configuration options to allow you to adjust the way mp generates its output.

The mptool is a graphical front-end to mp. It makes it easy to configure the printout of your documents without having to remember lots of complicated command line arguments. It also supports drag and drop of text from other Motif applications.

Rich Burridge is the author of the mp distribution. Vince Levey configured and built this package for IRIX 6.x.
