Mpage reads plain text files or PostScript documents and prints them on
a PostScript printer with the text reduced in size so that several
pages appear on one sheet of paper. This is useful for viewing large
printouts on a small amount of paper. Uses ISO 8859.1 to print 8-bit

- -t/-T options (duplex/tumble) improved to better deal with strange
printer defaults you may meet.
- docs in /usr/share/doc.
