1. NAME

foo2hp - Convert Ghostscript pbmraw or bitcmyk format into a ZJS printer stream

2. SYNOPSIS

foo2hp [ options "] <" pbmraw-file " >" zjs-file

foo2hp [ options "] <" bitcmyk-file " >" zjs-file

foo2hp [ options "] <" cups-file " >" zjs-file

3. DESCRIPTION

4. COMMAND LINE OPTIONS

4.1. Normal Options

These are the options used to select the parameters of a print job that are usually controlled on a per job basis.

  • -b\0 bits
        Bits per plane if autodetect doesn't work (1 or 2) [1].
  • -c
        Force color mode if autodetect doesn't work.
  • -d\0 duplex
        Duplex code to send to printer [1].
  • -g\0 xpix x ypix
        Set page dimensions in pixels [10200x6600].
  • -m\0 media
        Media code to send to printer [1].
  • -p\0 paper
        Paper code to send to printer [1].
  • -n\0 copies
        Number of copies [1].
  • -r\0 xres x yres
        Set device resolution in pixels/inch [600x600].
  • -s\0 source
        Source (InputSlot) code to send to printer [7].
  • -t
        Draft mode. Every other pixel is white.
  • -J\0 filename
        Filename string to send to printer.
  • -U\0 username
        Username string to send to printer.

4.2. Printer Tweaking Options

These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2hp for a particular printer.

  • -u\0 xoff x yoff
        Set the offset of the start of the printable region from the upper left corner, in pixels [0x0].
  • -l\0 xoff x yoff
        Set the offset of the end of the printable region from the lower right corner, in pixels [0x0].
  • -L\0 mask
        Send logical clipping amounts implied by -u/-l in the ZjStream [3].
  • -P
        Do not send START_PLANE codes on monochrome output. May be needed by some black and white only printers, such as the HP LaserJet 1000.
  • -A
        AllIsBlack: convert C=1,M=1,Y=1 to just K=1. Works with bitcmyk input only.
  • -B
        BlackClears: K=1 forces C,M,Y to 0. Works with bitcmyk input only.
  • -X\0 padlen
        Add extra zero padding to the end of BID segments. The default is 16 bytes.
0 don't send any logical clipping amounts
1 only send Y clipping amount
2 only send X clipping amount
3 send both X and Y clipping amounts

4.3. Debugging Options

These options are used for debugging foo2hp.

  • -S\0 plane
        Output just a single color plane from a color print and print it on the black plane. The default is to output all color planes.
  • -D\0 level
        Set Debug level [0].
1 Cyan
2 Magenta
3 Yellow
4 Black

5. EXAMPLES

Create a black and white ZJS stream:

 
Sélectionnez
gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE
    -sPAPERSIZE=letter -r600x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw
    -sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps
| foo2hp -r600x600 -g5100x6600 -p1 >testpage.zm

Create a color ZJS stream:

 
Sélectionnez
gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE
    -sPAPERSIZE=letter -g5100x6600 -r600x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk
    -sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps
| foo2hp -r600x600 -g5100x6600 -p1 >testpage.zc
