       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 available:

       \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

              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 program.

       •      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.
