NAME

       foo2slx-wrapper - Convert Postscript into a SLX printer stream

SYNOPSIS

       foo2slx-wrapper [options] [ps-file]

DESCRIPTION

       foo2slx-wrapper  is  a Foomatic compatible printer wrapper for the foo2slx printer driver.
       This script reads a Postscript ps-file or standard  input  and  converts  it  to  Software
       Imaging  K.K.  SLX printer format for driving the Lexmark C500 network color laser printer
       and other SLX-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 foo2slx 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.   foo2slx-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

   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).

       -G gamma-file.ps
              Prepend gamma-file.ps 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 foo2slx 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].

EXAMPLES

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

              foo2slx-wrapper testpage.ps > testpage.zm
              slxdecode < testpage.zm
              lpr -P raw testpage.zm

       Create a color ZjStream stream from a Postscript document:

              foo2slx-wrapper -c testpage.ps > testpage.zc
