NAME
la280of - Filter for the Japanese LA280 printer SYNOPSIS
/usr/lbin/la280of [-c] [-h host] [-i indent] [-l length] [-L locale] [-n login] [-w width] [accounting_file] OPTIONS
Prints control characters. Specifies the host name of the job owner. This name can contain Japanese characters. Specifies the amount of indentation. The default value is no (no indentation). Specifies the page length in lines. The default value is 66. Specifies the codeset used by the printer. This value must be a valid locale name. The default value is ja_JP.deckanji. Specifies login name of the job owner. This name can contain Japanese characters. Specifies the page width in columns. The default value is 132. OPERANDS
Specifies the file to record accounting information. DESCRIPTION
The la280of filter is used to filter text data for the Japanese LA280 printer. The filter handles the device dependencies of the printer and performs accounting functions. At print job completion time, accounting records are written to the file specified by the af field in the /etc/printcap file. The la280of filter can handle plain text files and files that have been preprocessed by nroff. Either kind of file can contain non-ASCII characters. The la280of filter translates nroff control sequences for underlining, superscripting, and subscripting into the proper control sequences for the LA280 printer. The la280of filter can be the specified filter in both the of and the if fields in the /etc/printcap file. For more information on these fields, see printcap(4). The LA280-J printer can be configured to use the software on-demand loading (SoftODL) mechanism to print user-defined characters (UDCs). See i18n_printing(5) for more information about SoftODL. To enable the SoftODL mechanism, set the ys value in /etc/printcap to 256. You can also set the default SoftODL database, style and size through the odldb and odlstyle options for the ya field. If you set the yt value, set it to fifo. Refer to printcap(4) for more informa- tion on these fields and associated options. NOTES
The lpr command supports a number of options associated with printer localization features. The following can be used with the la280of filter: To specify the SoftODL database path To specify SoftODL font style and size For more information on the lpr -A option, refer to lpr(1). ERRORS
The lf field (default value is /dev/null) in the /etc/printcap file specifies the name of the error log. SEE ALSO
