PAPERSIZE(5)              FreeBSD File Formats Manual             PAPERSIZE(5)

NAME
       papersize - specify preferred paper size

SYNOPSYS
       ${prefix}/etc/papersize

DESCRIPTION
       The papersize file is used to specify the preferred paper size to use
       by available commands and programs generating documents.

       The format of this file is extremely simple: whitespace and anything
       starting with `#' is ignored, and the name of the paper is the first
       string found; the case in the name of the paper does not import (see
       CAVEATS section however).

PAPER NAMES
       The following names are commonly understood by programs: a3, a4, a5,
       b5, letter, legal, executive, note and 11x17.

       Additional paper names that one may encounter are: a0, a1, a2, a6, a7,
       a8, a9, a10, b0, b1, b2, b3, b4, tabloid, statement, note, halfletter,
       halfexecutive, folio, quarto, ledger, archA, archB, archC, archD,
       archE, flsa, flse, csheet, dsheet, esheet and 10x14.

       The value of the papersize file can be overrideen by looking in order
       at the PAPERSIZE environment variable, then at the contents of the file
       specified by the PAPERCONF environment variable.  If the papersize file
       does not exist, programs using the paper library default to using
       letter as a fall-back value

CAVEATS
       This manual page documents the format of the papersize file that is
       read by the libpaper library.  Some programs that read this file do not
       yet use the library and may have trouble ignoring whitespace and
       comments in the file; they may also require that the paper names use a
       specific capitalization.
