If e2ps uses the "standard" (? - not sure where the names come from) names
(letter, a4, etc.), it lookes like the code that sets the default
(which probably looks something like

	if ( <-P not specified>) {
		psize = "a4";

can be replaced with

	#include <paper.h>


	if ( <-P not specified>) {
		psize = systempapersize();

Install libpaperg and checkout the /usr/doc/libpaperg/examples directory.

Clever. Distracting and confusing, but clever. Not to mention wrong
(because the time will have changed when I actually run e2ps).

Please consider going with Branden's suggestion. If I want to know the
date/time, I'll run 'date'.
