Hi, Karam,

i think you misunderstood the abilities of a2ps. The main work of a2ps is to
convert text files into ps files, but not the conversion of framemaker files.

If you have a running version of framemaker, there is no problem (by printing
into a PS file), but it seems that you only have the FRAMEMAKER .doc file.

One way would be: Use fm2html to convert .doc into html, then use html2ps
for converting the html file into PS (or display the html document in a
browser and print then into a ps file).

Have a look into
