=>- add a -f flag to lpf to add missing carriage returns.
=>useful when printing UNIX files to an, eg, LaserWriter that wants CR's
=>as well as LF's in raw text. stair-stepped text is no fun.
Shouldn't this be a printcap option? If you have more than one
printer you might want to LF-ify some but not others. For example,
a PCL printer might get a bit upset.
erm, this is an option to the "lpf" program, a standalone filter supplied
with the lpr suite, not an option to lpd itself. ie, one must setup a
filter in printcap using lpf to get at this functionality.
