I'm no fan of enscript.  I tried it in the past and found it to be lacking.

It works in linux with php4 I know this because my website uses it:

I haven't gotten around to sending a copy to the geshi devs.  Feel
free to hackup the version I have, replace my name in the comments,
send it in the geshi devs or whatever :)   I just hope someone finds
it useful.  It's probably a bit buggy.  For one thing, I have a bug
that prevents symbols from getting highlighted correctly.
