This question already has an answer here:
I'm trying to use
enscript to print PDFs from Mutt, and hitting character encoding issues with curly quotes. So that an email with text like this:
“very dirty” we’re
Comes out as:
â\200\234very dirtyâ\200\235 weâ\200\231re
My print script currently reads like this:
#!/usr/bin/env sh INPUT="$1" PDIR="$HOME/Desktop" OPEN_PDF=evince tmpfile="`mktemp $PDIR/mutt_XXXXXXXX.pdf`" enscript --font=Courier8 $INPUT -2r --word-wrap --fancy-header=mutt -p - 2>/dev/null | ps2pdf - $tmpfile $OPEN_PDF $tmpfile >/dev/null 2>&1 & sleep 1 rm $tmpfile
Is there a way to replace the curly quotes before I send it to
enscript? Or a character encoding I can use that will handle the quotes?
If there's another (better?) way to print to PDF from Mutt, I'm all ears. I just need to ensure that my quotes aren't getting fouled up.
