printing an info file
Hi, I was just wondering if there's a way to print an info file? For example I want to create a gdb manual by printing the stuff in the, instead of having to type 'info gdb' at the computer everytime i want to read about it.

To print info pages:
In this example, using tar info pages.

cp /usr/share/info/ /home/<user>

Copy the info page to another location to avoid breaking
your on-line documentation.

gunzip /home/<user>/

After decompressing the file, use a2ps to convert to PostScript.


This produces a PostScript formatted file called
Open in your favorite editor and print from there.

After uncompressing the info file i ran the a2ps and here's what i got:

[ttilt@localhost download]$ a2ps
