2. SYNOPSIS

foo2slx [ options "] <" pbmraw-file " >" slx-file

foo2slx [ options "] <" bitcmyk-file " >" slx-file

foo2slx [ options "] <" pksmraw-file " >" slx-file

4.2. Printer Tweaking Options

These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2slx 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].

        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].
  • -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.
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
