NAME

       foo2slx - Convert Ghostscript pbmraw or bitcmyk format into a SLX printer stream

SYNOPSIS

       foo2slx [options] <pbmraw-file >slx-file

       foo2slx [options] <bitcmyk-file >slx-file

       foo2slx [options] <pksmraw-file >slx-file

DESCRIPTION

       foo2slx  converts  Ghostscript pbmraw, bitcmyk, or pksmraw output formats to monochrome or
       color SLX streams, for driving the Lexmark C500 network color laser printer and other SLZ-
       based printers.  The SLX stream is a variant of ZjStream produced by Software Imaging K.K.

       -c     Force color mode if autodetect doesn't work.

       -g xpixxypix
              Set page dimensions in pixels [10200x6600].

       -m media
              Media code to send to printer [0].

   Printer Tweaking Options
       These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2slx 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

       -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.

          Debugging Options
              These options are used for debugging foo2slx.

       -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

       Create a black and white SLX stream:

              gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE
                  -sPAPERSIZE=letter -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw
                  -sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps
              | foo2slx -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p1 >testpage.zm

       Create a color SLX stream:

              gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE
                  -sPAPERSIZE=letter -g10200x6600 -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk
                  -sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps
              | foo2slx -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p1 >testpage.zc
