Description

Why does the -L flag exist? The .hp file should contain untruncated strings, and any truncation of the names should be done in hp2ps.

Does having a milestone imply that this is a desired feature and just waits for implementation? Might be some low hanging fruit for a bypassing contributor.

It means we think the suggestion is sensible, but with a priority of "normal" it isn't likely to get done by us (we only tend to get to the "high" stuff).

Regarding this ticket specifically, hp2ps needs to be thrown away and rewritten in Haskell. Last I heard hp2pretty wasn't quite there yet.
