Linux equivalent of Unix command lptops?

Anyone know of something I can use as an equivalent to the Unix lptops? Lptops functions as an ASCII to Poscript conversion tool.
I work in a mixed IRIX/linux environment, and I want to do some of the same things on the linux side that we do on the irix side.

Currently, to prints scripts and other files that are long we use:

lptops -G -M 2 -H -W -O 0.4pt -U <filename> | lp

I saw that enscript functions as an ASCII to PS conversion tool. (http Should I try this, or is there another tool that I haven't found yet that will do it.?

OS'es IRIX 6.5.x and redhat 7.3

Indeed, enscript is the way to go as a Linux equivalent of the lptops

I don't know of any good alternatives.

Good luck!
