Date: Wed, 19 Dec 2001 22:49:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <Pine.LNX.4.30.0102222041230.8007-100000@pto.sslug> (raw)

I asked about this a year ago, and nobody really could
help me - here goes again:

Using -- in a screen gives an irritating problem in PS
og PDF-output; look at this one

<screen>
d--x--x--x DIR1
dr-xr-xr-x DIR2
</screen>

The output looks in HTML like this (fine)
d--x--x--x DIR1
dr-xr-xr-x DIR2

However PS/PDF sees two consequtive minus-signs as a
long minus, i.e.

d-x-x-x DIR1
dr-xr-xr-x DIR2


It really looks stupid for directory-listings- can I
use a trick to get out of this situation - or trick
pdfjadetex to not combine two minus-signs?
