I have just started using gl2ps and find it very useful. I have had to
make 2 modifications to allow some of my applications to work.
(i) in gl2psTextOpt rather than specifying fontsize I needed to specify
font height and font width. The implication of this is fairly
straightforward. A new variable into gl2psTextOpt and in the postscript
output the "scalefont" is replaced with "makefont" with the matrix
"[width 0 0 height 0 0]".
(ii) I was held up for a while when I came to print special characters -
the ones I have found so far are "(", ")" and "\". If these are present
in the string to gl2psTextOpt then the postscript output has to be
modified to place a "\" in front of the character.
