       foo2qpdl-wrapper - Convert Postscript into a QPDL printer stream


       foo2qpdl-wrapper [options] [ps-file]


       foo2qpdl-wrapper is a Foomatic compatible printer wrapper for the foo2qpdl printer driver.
       This script reads a Postscript ps-file or standard input and converts it to  Samsung/Xerox
       QPDL  printer  format  for  driving  the  Samsung  CLP-300,  CLX-2160,  CLX-3160, CLP-315,
       CLX-3175, CLP-600, CLP-610, and Xerox Phaser 6110 QPDL 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  foo2qpdl  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 QPDL stream.  foo2qpdl-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
              Printer model. Model 0 is the default.

              model   Description
              0       CLP-300, CLX-2160, CLX-3160
              1       CLP-600
              2       CLP-310, CLP-315, CLP-610, CLX-3175
              3       CLP-620

   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 foo2qpdl 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 QPDL stream from a Postscript document, examine it, and then print it
       using a RAW print queue:

              foo2qpdl-wrapper >
              qpdldecode <
              lpr -P raw

       Create a color QPDL stream from a Postscript document:

              foo2qpdl-wrapper -c > testpage.zc




       foo2qpdl(1), qpdldecode(1)
