       foo2hbpl2-wrapper - Convert Postscript into a ZJS printer stream


       foo2hbpl2-wrapper [options] [ps-file]


       foo2hbpl2-wrapper  is  a  Foomatic  compatible  printer  wrapper for the foo2hbpl2 printer
       driver.  This script reads a Postscript ps-file or  standard  input  and  converts  it  to
       Zenographics ZjStream printer format for driving the Dell 1355, Dell C1765, Epson AcuLaser
       M1400, Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM205, Fuji Xerox DocuPrint P205, Xerox WorkCentre  3045  MFP,
       and Xerox WorkCentre 6015 MFP 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 foo2hbpl2 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].   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.   foo2hbpl2-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

       -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.

   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 foo2hbpl2 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:

              foo2hbpl2-wrapper > testpage.prn
              hbpl2decode < testpage.prn
              lpr -P raw testpage.prn

       Create a color ZjStream stream from a Postscript document:

              foo2hbpl2-wrapper -c > testpage.prn




       foo2hbpl2(1), hbpldecode(1)
