enscript: "option '--word-wrap' doesn't allow an argument"


I'm trying to use "enscript" to print from plain text files. I need the '--word-wrap' option to get readable output. However, it insists on interpreting anything else on the command-line as an argument!

EXAMPLE
prompt> enscript --output=snippet.ps --word-wrap snippet.tex

enscript.bin: option '--word-wrap' doesn't allow an argument
Try `enscript.bin --help' for more information.

What's going wrong here?
How do I fix it?
Any ideas?

Try to put -- to terminate the options section:
Code:
enscript --output=snippet.ps --word-wrap -- snippet.tex
