I've written an IDL filter for the very nice a2ps

It comes with the a2ps distribution.  I haven't updated 
the filter for quite awhile, but it will cover most of 
the IDL keywords and functions.  You can create a 
Postscript file with

    a2ps -E idl -o file.ps file.pro

a2ps has many other options available as well.
