"enscript --word-wrap" does not wrap line of text file
 
I want to print a text file with line number added.
Therefore I use "enscript -C" to print.
I use "Courier8" which is the smallest font I like.
However, this command does not wrap line of text file.
i.e. some lines are chopped off at the right margin.
$ enscript -C -f "Courier8" --word-wrap xxx
[ 1 pages * 1 copy ] sent to printer

This will wrap line of text file but does not have the line number added.
$ lpr xxx

$ enscript --version
GNU enscript 1.6.1

I use FC3 linux.

Perhaps it is the printer truncating rather than encript. Have you tried looking at the result with gs or kghostscript? Also, check the page size defaults in enscript.cfg

What is the proper command for gs?

gs filename should give you a graphic view of the document.

Use gs --help to explore all of the other commands.
