Hi Arrigo ,
I tried your example on Stack Overflow. But for me it runs great.
I added the pdf so you can see it.
Can you tell me on what OS your trying this ?
Are you on macos ?
I'm on Linux Artix
is your environment set to UTF-8.
What is the output of your locale ?
Kind Regards,
Wim Stockman

I have posted an article about this problem on Stack Overflow:


It seems that enscript is not able to correctly map the spaces in the text file that it receives as input even if the afm files generated by ttf2ufm contain the entry for the space code (32) (see the last comment in the article). Any help on this problem will be highly appreciated!
