foo2hp - Convert Ghostscript pbmraw or bitcmyk format into a ZJS printer stream SYNOPSIS
foo2hp [options] <pbmraw-file >zjs-file foo2hp [options] <bitcmyk-file >zjs-file foo2hp [options] <cups-file >zjs-file DESCRIPTION
foo2hp converts Ghostscript pbmraw, bitcmyk, or cups output formats to monochrome or color ZJS streams, for driving the Hewlett-Packard 2600n color laser printer and other Zenographics-based printers. COMMAND LINE OPTIONS
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 bits Bits per plane if autodetect doesn't work (1 or 2) [1]. -c Force color mode if autodetect doesn't work. -d duplex Duplex code to send to printer [1]. | | | |1 off | 2 long edge | 3 short edge -g xpixxypix Set page dimensions in pixels [10200x6600]. -m media Media code to send to printer [1]. -------------------------- Media HPLJ 2600n -------------------------- plain 1 preprinted 514 letterhead 513 transparency 2 prepunched 515 labels 265 bond 260 recycled 516 color 512 tough 276 envelope 267 light 258 heavy 262 cardstock 261 lightglossy 268 glossy 269 heavyglossy 270 cover 277 photo 278 -p paper Paper code to send to printer [1]. +-----------------+-------------+ | 1 letter | 9 A4 | | 5 legal | 11 A5 | | 7 executive | 13 B5jis | |20 env #10 | 27 env DL | |28 env C5 | 34 env B5 | |37 env Monarch | | +-----------------+-------------+ -n copies Number of copies [1]. -r xresxyres Set device resolution in pixels/inch [600x600]. -s source Source (InputSlot) code to send to printer [7]. | | |1 tray 2 | 7 auto |2 tray 1 | -t Draft mode. Every other pixel is white. -J filename Filename string to send to printer. -U username Username string to send to printer. Printer Tweaking Options These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2hp for a particular printer. -u xoffxyoff Set the offset of the start of the printable region from the upper left corner, in pixels [0x0]. -l xoffxyoff Set the offset of the end of the printable region from the lower right corner, in pixels [0x0]. -L mask Send logical clipping amounts implied by -u/-l in the ZjStream [3]. 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 -O c,m,y,k Alignment of CMYK in rows. The default is 0,0,0,0. -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 padlen Add extra zero padding to the end of BID segments. The default is 16 bytes. Debugging Options These options are used for debugging foo2hp. -S 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. 1 Cyan 2 Magenta 3 Yellow 4 Black -D level Set Debug level [0]. EXAMPLES
