GROLBP(1)										GROLBP(1)

NAME
       grolbp - groff driver for Canon CAPSL printers (LBP-4 and LBP-8 series laser printers).

SYNOPSIS
       grolpb [ -l ] [ --landscape ] [ -v ] [ --version ] [ -cn ] [ --copies=numcopies ]
	      [ -ppaper_size ] [ --papersize=paper_size ] [ -oorientation ]
	      [ --orientation=orientation ] [ -wwidth ] [ --linewidth=width ] [ -Fdir ]
	      [ --fontdir=dir ] [ -h ] [ --help ] [ files... ]

DESCRIPTION
       grolbp is a driver for groff that produces output in CAPSL and  VDM  format  suitable  for
       Canon LBP-4 and LBP-8 printers.

       For compatibility with grolj4 there is an additional drawing command available:

       \D'R dh dv'
	      Draw  a  rule  (i.e. a solid black rectangle), with one corner at the current posi-
	      tion, and the diagonally opposite corner at the current position +(dh,dv).

OPTIONS
       Note that there can be whitespace between a one-letter option and  its  argument;  on  the
       other hand, there must be whitespace and/or an equal sign (`=') between a long-name option
       and its argument.

       -cnumcopies
       --copies=numcopies
	      Print numcopies copies of each page.

       -l
       --landscape
	      Print the document with a landscape orientation.

       -ppaper_size
       --papersize=paper_size
	      Set the paper size to paper_size, which must be a valid paper size  description  as
	      indicated in the section PAPER SIZES.

       -oorientation
       --orientation=orientation
	      Print the document with orientation orientation, which must be `portrait' or `land-
	      scape'.

       -wwidth
       --linewidth=width
	      Set the default line thickness to width thousandths of an em.  If this option isn't
	      specified, the line thickness defaults to 0.04 em.

       -v
       --version
	      Print the version number.

       -Fdir
       --fontdir=dir
	      Prepend  directory  dir/devname  to the search path for font and device description
	      files; name is the name of the device, usually lbp.

       -h
       --help Print a short help text.

TYPEFACES
       The driver supports the Dutch, Swiss and Swiss-Narrow scalable typefaces, each one in  the
       Regular,  Bold,	Italic	and  Bold-Italic  styles.   Additionally,  the	Courier and Elite
       monospaced typefaces at the sizes 8 and 12 points (for Courier) resp. 8 and 10 points (for
       Elite) are supported, each one in the Regular, Bold and Italic styles.

       The following chart summarizes the font names you can use to access these fonts:

		    +----------------+-----------+--------+----------+--------------+
		    |	Typeface     |	Regular  |  Bold  |  Italic  |	Bold-Italic |
		    +----------------+-----------+--------+----------+--------------+
		    | Dutch	     |	  TR	 |   TB   |    TI    |	    TBI     |

		    | Courier	     |	  CR	 |   CB   |    CI    |		    |
		    +----------------+-----------+--------+----------+--------------+

		    +----------------+-----------+--------+----------+--------------+
PAPER SIZES
       The paper size can be set in the DESC file or with command line options to grolbp.  If the
       paper size is specified both ways, the command line options take precedence over the  con-
       tents of the DESC file (this applies to the page orientation too).

       See groff_font(1) how to set the paper dimensions in the DESC file.

       To set the paper size in the command line, add

	 -p paper-size

       or

	 --papersize=paper-size

       to the other grolbp options, where paper-size is in the same format as in the DESC file.

       If  no  paper size is specified in the DESC file or the command line, a default size of A4
       is used.

PAGE ORIENTATION
       As with the page size, the orientation of the printed page (portrait or landscape) can  be
       set in the DESC file or with command line options.  It is also case insensitive.

       To set the orientation in the DESC file, insert a line with the following content:

	 orientation [portrait|landscape]

       Only the first valid orientation command in the DESC file is used.

       To  set the page orientation with command line options you can use the -o or --orientation
       option with the same parameters (portrait or landscape) as in the DESC file.  Or  you  can
       use the -l option to force the pages to be printed in landscape.

FONT FILE FORMAT
       In  addition to the usual commands described in groff_font(5), grolbp provides the command
       lbpname which sets the font name sent to the printer when requesting this font.	The  syn-
       tax of this command is:

	 lbpname printer_font_name

       o      For bitmapped fonts, printer_font_name has the form

		N<base_fontname><font_style>

	      base_fontname  is the font name as it appears in the printers font listings without
	      the first letter, up to (but not including) the font size.  font_style can  be  one
	      of  the  letters	R, I, or B, indicating the font styles Roman, Italic and Bold re-
	      spectively.

	      For instance, if the printer's font listing A shows font	`Nelite12I.ISO_USA',  the
	      corresponding entry in the font description file is

		lbpname NeliteI

	      Note  that  you  may  need to modify grolbp to add support for new bitmapped fonts,
	      since the available font names and font sizes of	bitmapped  fonts  (as  documented
	      above) are hard-coded into the program.

       o      For  scalable  fonts, printer_font_name is identical to the font name as it appears
	      in the printer's font listing A.

	      For instance, to select the `Swiss' font in bold style, which appears in the print-
	      er's font listing A as `Swiss-Bold', the required lbpname command line is

		lbpname Swiss-Bold

       The argument of lbpname is case sensitive.
