       foo2hbpl2-wrapper - Convert Postscript into a ZJS printer stream


       foo2hbpl2-wrapper [options] [ps-file]


       foo2hbpl2-wrapper  is  a  Foomatic  compatible  printer  wrapper for the foo2hbpl2 printer
       driver.  This script reads a Postscript ps-file or  standard  input  and  converts  it  to
       Zenographics ZjStream printer format for driving the Dell 1355, Dell C1765, Epson AcuLaser
       M1400, Epson AcuLaser CX17NF, Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM205, Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM215, Fuji
       Xerox DocuPrint P205, Xerox Phaser 3010, Xerox Phaser 3040, Xerox WorkCentre 3045 MFP, and
       Xerox WorkCentre 6015 MFP printers.

       This script can be used in a standalone fashion, but is  intended  to  be  called  from  a
       printer spooler system which uses the Foomatic printer database.

   Printer Tweaking Options
       These are the options used to customize  the  operation  of  foo2hbpl2  for  a  particular

       -u xoffxyoff
              Set  the offset of the start of the printable region from the upper left corner, in
              pixels [varies with paper size].  The  defaults  should  work  on  the  2200DL  and
              2300DL, and have not been tested on any other printers.

       -l xoffxyoff
              Set  the  offset of the end of the printable region from the lower right corner, in
              pixels [varies with paper size].  The  defaults  should  work  on  the  2200DL  and
              2300DL, and have not been tested on any other printers.

       -L mask
              Send  the  logical  clipping  values from -u/-l in the ZjStream.  foo2hbpl2-wrapper
              always runs Ghostscript with the ideal page dimensions, so that the  scale  of  the
              image  is  correct,  regardless whether or not the printer has unprintable regions.
              This option is used to move the position of the clipped  image  back  to  where  it
              belongs on the page.  The default is to send the amount which was clipped by -u and
              -l, and should be good in most cases.

              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

       -P     Do not send START_PLANE  codes  on  monochrome  output.   May  be  needed  by  some
              monochrome-only printers, such as the HP LaserJet 1000.

       -X padlen
              Add  extra  zero  padding  to  the  end  of BID segments.  The default is 16 bytes.
              Padding 16 bytes of zeroes is needed for  older  ZjStream  printers,  such  as  the
              Minolta  2200DL and HP LaserJet 1000, and seems harmless to newer ones, such as the
              Minolta 2300DL.  So the default should be good for all cases.

   Color Tweaking Options
       These are the options used to control the quality of color output.   Color  correction  is
       currently a WORK IN PROGRESS.

       -g gsopts
              Additional  options to pass to Ghostscript, such as -g“-dDITHERPPI=nnn”, etc.  This
              option may appear more than once.

       -G profile.icm
              Convert profile.icm to a Postscript color rendering dictionary (CRD) using foo2zjs-
              icc2ps  and  adjust  the  printer  colors by using the Postscript setcolorrendering
              operator.  (WORK IN PROGRESS).

              Prepend to the Postscript input to perform color correction using the
              setcolortransfer Postscript operator.  For example, the file might contain:
              {0.333 exp} {0.333 exp} {0.333 exp} {0.333 exp} setcolortransfer

       -I intent
              Select   profile   intent   from   the  ICM  file.   0=Perceptual,  1=Colorimetric,
              2=Saturation, 3=Absolute.  Default is 0 (perceptual).

   Debugging Options
       These options are used for debugging foo2hbpl2 and its wrapper.

       -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].


       Create  a  monochrome  ZjStream  from a Postscript document, examine it, and then print it
       using a RAW print queue:

              foo2hbpl2-wrapper > testpage.prn
              hbpl2decode < testpage.prn
              lpr -P raw testpage.prn

       Create a color ZjStream stream from a Postscript document:

              foo2hbpl2-wrapper -c > testpage.prn




       foo2hbpl2(1), hbpldecode(1)
