       grolbp is a driver for groff that produces  output  in  CAPSL  and  VDM
       format suitable for Canon LBP-4 and LBP-8 printers.

       For  compatibility  with  grolj4 there is an additional drawing command

       \D'R dh dv'
              Draw a rule (i.e. a solid black rectangle), with one  corner  at
              the  current position, and the diagonally opposite corner at the
              current position +(dh,dv).


       Note that there can be whitespace between a one-letter option  and  its
       argument;  on  the other hand, there must be whitespace and/or an equal
       sign (‘=’) between a long-name option and its argument.

              Print numcopies copies of each page.

              Print the document with a landscape orientation.

              Set the paper size to paper_size, which must be  a  valid  paper
              size description as indicated in the section PAPER SIZES.

              Print  the  document with orientation orientation, which must be
              ‘portrait’ or ‘landscape’.

              Set the default line thickness to width thousandths  of  an  em.
              If  this  option isn't specified, the line thickness defaults to
              0.04 em.

              Print the version number.

              Prepend directory dir/devname to the search path  for  font  and
              device  description  files;  name  is  the  name  of the device,
              usually lbp.

       --help Print a short help text.


       The  driver  supports  the  Dutch,  Swiss  and  Swiss-Narrow   scalable
       typefaces,  each  one  in  the  Regular,  Bold,  Italic and Bold-Italic
       styles.  Additionally, the Courier and Elite  monospaced  typefaces  at
       the  sizes  8  and  12  points (for Courier) resp. 8 and 10 points (for
       Elite) are supported, each one in the Regular, Bold and Italic styles.

       The following chart summarizes the font names you  can  use  to  access
       these fonts:

          │   Typeface     │  Regular  │  Bold  │  Italic  │  Bold-Italic │
          │ Dutch          │    TR     │   TB   │    TI    │      TBI     │
          │ Swiss          │    HR     │   HB   │    HI    │      HBI     │
          │ Swiss Narrow   │    HNR    │  HNB   │   HNI    │     HNBI     │
          │ Courier        │    CR     │   CB   │    CI    │              │
          │ Elite          │    ER     │   EB   │    EI    │              │


       The paper size can be set in the DESC file or with command line options
       to grolbp.  If the paper size is specified both ways, the command  line
       options  take  precedence  over  the  contents  of  the DESC file (this
       applies to the page orientation too).

       See groff_font(5) how to set the paper dimensions in the DESC file.

       To set the paper size in the command line, add

         -p paper-size



       to the other grolbp options, where paper-size is in the same format  as
       in the DESC file.

       If  no  paper size is specified in the DESC file or the command line, a
       default size of A4 is used.


       As with the page size, the orientation of the printed page (portrait or
       landscape)  can  be  set in the DESC file or with command line options.
       It is also case insensitive.

       To set the orientation in  the  DESC  file,  insert  a  line  with  the
       following content:

         orientation [portrait|landscape]

       Only the first valid orientation command in the DESC file is used.

       To  set  the page orientation with command line options you can use the
       -o or --orientation  option  with  the  same  parameters  (portrait  or
       landscape)  as in the DESC file.  Or you can use the -l option to force
       the pages to be printed in landscape.


       In addition to the usual commands described  in  groff_font(5),  grolbp
       provides  the  command  lbpname  which  sets  the font name sent to the
       printer when requesting this font.  The syntax of this command is:

         lbpname printer_font_name

       ·      For bitmapped fonts, printer_font_name has the form

                N⟨base_fontname⟩⟨font_stylebase_fontname is the font name as it  appears  in  the  printers
              font   listings  without  the  first  letter,  up  to  (but  not
              including) the font size.  font_style can be one of the  letters
              R,  I,  or  B, indicating the font styles Roman, Italic and Bold

              For instance,  if  the  printer's  font  listing  A  shows  font
              ‘Nelite12I.ISO_USA’,   the   corresponding  entry  in  the  font
              description file is

                lbpname NeliteI

              Note that you may need to modify grolbp to add support  for  new
              bitmapped  fonts,  since the available font names and font sizes
              of bitmapped fonts (as documented above) are hard-coded into the

       ·      For  scalable  fonts, printer_font_name is identical to the font
              name as it appears in the printer's font listing A.

              For instance, to select the ‘Swiss’ font in  bold  style,  which
              appears  in  the  printer's  font listing A as ‘Swiss-Bold’, the
              required lbpname command line is

                lbpname Swiss-Bold

       The argument of lbpname is case sensitive.
