Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 202638
empty line after the form feed
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:40 EST
Description of problem:
When formating the text which contains the form feed (^L) character, the
page after the form feed starts with the first line empty.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Cteate the file test.txt, containing this:
this is before the form feed.
^Lthis is after the form feed.
(the ^L is the Control-L character, of course).
2. run "paps test.txt > test.ps"
3. view or print the test.ps file
The text "this is after the form feed." in the second page is printed
with bigger top margin than the text in the first page. The topmost line
on the second page is empty.
Both pages should have the text with the same top margin.
I am reporting this to RH Bugzilla rather than upstream, as the whole form-feed
handling is apparently a Fedora Extras packager's addition (thanks for it, I
really need to handle form-feeds correctly!).
Fixed in 0.6.6-7.fc5.
