chequePrint : Linux utility to print into cheques

The problem : As I do not write much on paper these days, writing cheques will cause some cheque leaves go waste. Earlier I had created a template in LibreOffice to solve the problem. However, I could not use that template as it was for a different bank. It was too difficult to get the alignment correct as there were boxes for days, month & year.

Solution : Write a script! Initially considered generating TeX files but zeroed in on PostScript as it would be easy to do the layout.
The script is available in the chequePrint GitHub repo.
