Question escape sequences in enscript

how can I activate escape sequences in escript? I'm using the escape seq "^@epsf{filename.eps}" but it is not interpreted by "enscript -e" as the man page indicate, but printed out as you written in text file.
Some idea?

Using -e with enscript

When you use the -e option, you should follow the -e with the new escape character you want to use. I used the tilde ~ since that wouldn't happen to be in the text. So the syntax would be enscript -e~ ...

Then in the text, put something like ~font{Courier-Bold7.1} This causes the text to be Courier Bold 7.1 pt until another ~font command is issued.

Let me know how this works for you.
