Converting Text files to PDF

Hi Guys
I am running RH ES4.0
Can anyone recommend a good command-line application that would convert a text file to pdf with a choice of font and page styles
I do not mind paying for it

Hi,

one of solutions which is quite easy to use and have some configuration possibilities is the 'pdf printer'.
You can install package like cups-pdf or similar (if you use cups printing system). Then you 'print' your
files to special printer which is in fact pdf file.

Let me know if this is what you need.

something which is useful, but could be hard to administrate (change fonts etc.) is a2ps:
a2ps text.txt > my.ps
ps2pdf my.ps

I have been playing with your proposed solution for a while now. but documention is unclear
Do I use only the cli switches?
Is there a configuration file I can use with a2ps? where? What name?
Are there any clearer samples somewhere?
Thank you dory

I downloaded txt2pdf a few days ago but  it seems that their demo version does not read the cfg file
I seems however to work fine with the defaults.
Do you happen to know if their personal version,( once bought) lives up to al the feature they attribute to it?
I sent them an email but have had no response...
Thank you
Dory

Dory,
I have not used txt2pdf personal version so I can't say but I would not expect them to exaggerate their feature list.
