Notes about GPE

GPE is a very simple text editor that will be called by the core program when some text data has to be displayed or printed.
You can use any other editor you like. Just redirect the 'gpe' binary to your favorite editor using ln -s command.
The core program will generally issue text files that are 70 lines x 80 columns matrix formatted and an A4 or Letter for US paper format is expected to be used.
 
For Linux users:
In order to print you have to create a small script named <mps-ps> that will take a single parameter ( the passed GPE file name). This approach gives you full open door on what way the printing issues are handled.
With CUPS installed the script is very simple

#!/bin/bash
# script mps-ps
lpr $1

Please ensure that the script is executable and placed in $HOME/bin or /usr/local/bin.
The encoding of the affiliates data is UTF-8 since version 3.1.

For Windows  users a call to NOTEPAD is done instead of GPE.
The encoding of the affiliates data is ISO.
