NAME

foo2hp − Convert Ghostscript pbmraw or bitcmyk format into a ZJS printer stream

SYNOPSIS

foo2hp [options] <pbmraw-file >zjs-file

foo2hp [options] <bitcmyk-file >zjs-file

foo2hp [options] <cups-file >zjs-file

DESCRIPTION

foo2hp converts Ghostscript pbmraw, bitcmyk, or cups output formats to monochrome or color ZJS streams, for driving the Hewlett-Packard 2600n color laser printer and other Zenographics-based printers.

COMMAND LINE OPTIONS

Normal Options
These are the options used to select the parameters of a print job that are usually controlled on a per job basis.
−b
bits

Bits per plane if autodetect doesn’t work (1 or 2) [1].

−c

Force color mode if autodetect doesn’t work.

−d duplex

Duplex code to send to printer [1].

−g xpixxypix

Set page dimensions in pixels [10200x6600].

−m media

Media code to send to printer [1].

−p paper

Paper code to send to printer [1].

−n copies

Number of copies [1].

−r xresxyres

Set device resolution in pixels/inch [600x600].

−s source

Source (InputSlot) code to send to printer [7].

−t

Draft mode. Every other pixel is white.

−J filename

Filename string to send to printer.

−U username

Username string to send to printer.

Printer Tweaking Options
These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2hp for a particular printer.
−u
xoffxyoff

Set the offset of the start of the printable region from the upper left corner, in pixels [0x0].

−l xoffxyoff

Set the offset of the end of the printable region from the lower right corner, in pixels [0x0].

−L mask

Send logical clipping amounts implied by −u/-l in the ZjStream [3].

−O c,m,y,k

Alignment of CMYK in rows. The default is 0,0,0,0.

−P

Do not send START_PLANE codes on monochrome output. May be needed by some black and white only printers, such as the HP LaserJet 1000.

−A

AllIsBlack: convert C=1,M=1,Y=1 to just K=1. Works with bitcmyk input only.

−B

BlackClears: K=1 forces C,M,Y to 0. Works with bitcmyk input only.

−X padlen

Add extra zero padding to the end of BID segments. The default is 16 bytes.

Debugging Options
These options are used for debugging foo2hp.
−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.

−D level

Set Debug level [0].

EXAMPLES

Create a black and white ZJS stream:

gs −q −dBATCH −dSAFER −dQUIET −dNOPAUSE  
−sPAPERSIZE=letter −r600x600 −sDEVICE=pbmraw  
−sOutputFile=- − < testpage.ps  
| foo2hp −r600x600 −g5100x6600 −p1 >testpage.zm

Create a color ZJS stream:

gs −q −dBATCH −dSAFER −dQUIET −dNOPAUSE  
−sPAPERSIZE=letter −g5100x6600 −r600x600 −sDEVICE=bitcmyk  
−sOutputFile=- − < testpage.ps  
| foo2hp −r600x600 −g5100x6600 −p1 >testpage.zc
