1)the file was cutted at the end (2 or 3 char lost)
2)bold is ok but replicated examples: 
TOTAL x.xxx (one spaces) x.xxx (replicated in bold)
Why?when I use windows and pdfcreator is all ok.I have emulated the same
printer(IBM3812).

subject: [LINUX5250] trouble with lp5250d

Hello i have a problem and i can not solve with print emulator lp5250d when
i print any document with lp5250d i have in my output same lines repeated.I
suppose the duplication is for bold font for impact printers, but my output
is an pdf document.
When i use scs2ps i have the output correct but is in an orrible font.Why?
 this is my macro line for lp5250d
arpdfo {
        host = 10.10.10.250
        env.DEVNAME = ARPDFO
outputcommand=scs2ascii | enscript -Brq --margins=50:50:150:0
        -fCourier@6 -d asArPDF
}

Thanks for any help and excuse me for  my poor english
 
Francesco

You are correct that bold on impact printers was accomplished by sending the
bolded characters to the printer twice and slightly offsetting the second
set of characters.  I'm guessing that this is confusing enscript and it
can't figure out where to appropriately place the second set of characters.
scs2ascii doesn't detect this bold situation and enscript doesn't have a way
of doing so either that I know of.

Have you tried using scs2pdf?  scs2pdf does handle the bolded characters
correctly.  scs2pdf also sometimes has page size problems, but it may work
for you.  Could you try it and report back the results?

It's not the software that's free; it's you.
