       foo2hiperc-wrapper - Convert Postscript into a HIPERC printer stream


       foo2hiperc-wrapper [options] [ps-file]


       foo2hiperc-wrapper  is  a  Foomatic  compatible printer wrapper for the foo2hiperc printer
       driver.  This script reads a Postscript ps-file or standard input and converts it  to  the
       Oki  HIPERC  printer  format  for  driving  the  Oki C310dn, C3100, C3200, C3300n, C3400n,
       C5100n, C5500n, C5600n and the C5800n HIPERC 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  foo2hiperc  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].

       -l xoffxyoff
              Set the offset of the end of the printable region from the lower right  corner,  in
              pixels [varies with paper size].

       -L mask
              Send  the  logical  clipping  values  from -u/-l in the HIPERC stream.  foo2hiperc-
              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

       -z model
              Model is 0 for non-A3 sized printers, and 1 for  A3/Tabloid/Ledger  sized  printers
              (i.e. C810, etc.).  The default is 0.

       -Z compressed
              Use uncompressed (0) or compressed (1) JBIG data.

   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 foo2hiperc 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 HIPERC stream from a Postscript document, examine it, and  then  print
       it using nc(1) or netcat(1):

              foo2hiperc-wrapper > testpage.hc
              hipercdecode < testpage.hc
              nc 192.168.1.NNN 9100 < testpage.hc

       Create a color HIPERC stream from a Postscript document:

              foo2hiperc-wrapper -c > testpage.hc




       foo2hiperc(1), hipercdecode(1)
