Description nstn1291 1999-03-26 00:27:34 UTC
When given a plain-text file to convert to Postscript,
mapge 2.4 in my Red Hat 5.2 CD
does not output the last line of the file.

Consequenlty, using lpr to print a text file causes the
last line of the file to be omitted.

Is there a newline at the end of the file?

That's why - if you add a newline to the end of the file, it
will print correctly. We'll look into fixing mpage later.
