       foo2hp2600-wrapper - Convert Postscript into a ZJS printer stream


       foo2hp2600-wrapper [options] [ps-file]


       foo2hp2600-wrapper is a Foomatic compatible printer wrapper for the foo2hp printer driver.
       This script reads a Postscript ps-file or standard input and converts it  to  Zenographics
       ZjStream  printer  format  for  driving  the Hewlett-Packard 2600n color laser printer and
       other Zenographics-based 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 foo2hp for a particular printer.

       -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.   foo2hp2600-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

       -O parm=val
              Alignment  of  CMYK.  parm is c, m, y, or k.  val is in rows.  Multiple options are
              allowed.  The default is "-Oc=0 -Om=0 -Oy=0 -Ok=0".

       -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.

       -z model
              Model: Model: 0=HP CLJ 1600/2600n; 1=HP CLJ CP1215

   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.  If profile.icm is none.icm, then  prepare  for  ordering  a  ICM  custom
              printer profile (i.e. from

              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 foo2hp 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:

              foo2hp2600-wrapper >
              zjsdecode <
              lpr -P raw

       Create a color ZjStream stream from a Postscript document:

              foo2hp2600-wrapper -c > testpage.zc




       foo2hp(1), zjsdecode(1)
