  * status:  closed => reopened


 Sory for the late reply Alexander. Priorities (you know 3 children,wife
 ...) especially the latter :).

 I am afraid I have to reopen the ticket for at least one more try,feel
 free to close it again (as invalid?- by creating those "Drop tickets" I am
 trying to record -just record for now - eternal discussions in blfs-
 dev/trak,see above in (2)).

 1. While Dan got an answer (even an oneliner) to his question,I will leave
 out the 'if both' statement and keep the 'one of them'.
 I still believe that is a regression to keep them both.

 2. And excuse me but you seem to condradict with yourself.
 See #1993;In your statement in 08/05/06 20:41:29: you say.
 "Also, maybe it makes sense to drop both A2PS and Enscript packages as
 "dead upstream" after BLFS-6.2."

 And by the way and excuse my ignorance.
 What exactly  means the "syntax highlighting when printing source code".

 That means (of top of my head thinking right now),a2ps or enscript has the
 abilitty to preserve the syntax (highlighting) of a source code when
 converts it from text to postrcript, and eventually in the printing paper
 with let's say some italic or bold font,so it looks the same (kinda) as in
 the original text?
 The question has nothing to do with the actual ticket,so feel free to
 ignore it.It make sence just to satisfy the substance of the LFS project
