4.2. Printer Tweaking Options

These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2qpdl 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 QPDL stream [3].
  • -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.
  • -z\0 model
        Printer model. Model 0 is the default.
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

Create a black and white QPDL stream:

 
Sélectionnez
gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE
    -sPAPERSIZE=letter -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw
    -sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps
| foo2qpdl -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p0 >testpage.zm

Create a color QPDL stream:

 
Sélectionnez
gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE
    -sPAPERSIZE=letter -g10200x6600 -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk
