Name
       lg02of - LG02 Matrix Line Printer

Syntax
       /usr/lib/lpdfilters/lg02of [-c] [-nlogin] [-hhost] [-wwidth] [-lnum] [-iindent]	[accounting file]

Description
       The  filter is used to filter text data destined for the LG02 line printer.  The filter handles the device dependencies of the printers and
       performs accounting functions.  Accounting records are written to the file specified by the af field in at the time of completion for  each
       job.

       The  filter can handle plain ASCII files and files that have been preprocessed by nroff.  The filter translates nroff control sequences for
       underlining, superscripting and subscripting into the correct LG02 control sequences.

       The filter can be the specified filter in both the of and the if fields in the file.  For further information, see  When  both  fields  are
       specified  the  of  filter  is used only to print the banner page.  It is then stopped to allow the if filter access to the printer. The if
       filter maintains accounting information.

       If the of field is the only one specified the filter is used to print the banner page.  It is then stopped and restarted.  This allows  the
       of filter to be used to maintain accounting information.

       If the if field is the only one specified the banner page will be sent directly to the printer. If the printer has been left in an undeter-
       mined state the banner page may not print correctly.

       The best results will be obtained when the filter is specified in both the of and if fields.  For a more detailed discussion on filters see
       the ``Line Printer Spooler Manual'' in the ULTRIX Supplementary Documents, Volume 2: Programmer.

Options
       The arguments passed to the filter depend on its use.  The of filter is called with the following arguments:

       lg02of -wwidth -llength
	      The  width and length values come from the pw and pl fields in the database. The if (or restarted of) filter is passed the following
	      arguments:

	lg02of -c -nlogin -hhost -wwidth -lnum -iindent  accounting file
	      The -c flag is optional, and supplied only when control characters are to be printed, that is, when the -l  option  of  is  used	to
	      print  the file. The -w and -l arguments are the same as for the of filter, however, they may have different values if the -w and/or
	      -z options of were used to print the file.  If the value of the width is greater than 80 the job will be printed in  landscape  mode
	      with  a  slightly  smaller font. The length of the page is assumed to be 66 regardless of the length specified.  The -n and -h argu-
	      ments specify the login name and host name of the job owner.  These arguments are used to  record  accounting  information.  The	-i
	      option  specifies  the  amount of indentation to be used. The last argument is the name of the accounting file specified from the af
	      field in the database.

Diagnostics
       Are sent to wherever specifies with the lf field.

Name
       lpf - general purpose line printer filter

Syntax
       /usr/lib/lpdfilters/lpf [-c] [-nlogin] [-hhost] [-wwidth] [-lnum] [-iindent]  [accounting file]

Description
       The  filter  handles text data destined for impact printers: LP25, LP26, LP27, LA50, LA75, LA100, LA120, LA210, LG01.  The filter regulates
       the device dependencies of the printers and performs accounting functions.  When the print job is done, writes accounting  records  to  the
       file specified by the af field in /etc/printcap.

       The  filter  can  handle  plain	ASCII  files  as well as files that have been preprocessed by nroff.  However, it ignores escape sequences
       requesting superscripting and subscripting.

       You can specify the filter in both the of and the if fields of the file.  For further information, see When you specify both fields, the of
       filter  prints the banner page only, then stops.  The if filter then gains access to the printer. The if filter maintains accounting infor-
       mation.

       If you specify the of field only, it prints the banner page then stops and restarts to maintain accounting information.

       If you specify the if field only, it sends the banner page directly to the printer.  This is not a problem for most impact printers.

       For a more detailed discussion on filters see the ``Line Printer Spooler Manual'' in the ULTRIX Supplementary Documents, Volume 2: Program-
       mer.

       The arguments passed to the filter depend on its use.  The of filter is called with the following arguments:

       lpf -wwidth -llength
	      The  width  and  length values come from the pw and pl fields in the database. The if (or restart of) filter is passed the following
	      arguments:

       lpf -c -nlogin -hhost -wwidth -lnum -iindent  accounting file

       The -c flag is optional and supplied only when control characters are to be printed; when the -l option of is used to print the	file.  The
       -w  and -l arguments are the same as for the of filter, however, they may have different values if the -w and/or -z options of were used to
       print the file.	The -n and -h arguments specify the login name and host name of the job owner. These arguments are used to record account-
       ing  information. The -i option specifies the amount of indentation to be used. The last argument is the name of the accounting file speci-
       fied from the af field in the database.

Diagnostics
       The lf field (default /dev/null) in the database specifies error logging file name.
