       cjet - converts HP PCL to Canon CaPSL format


       cjet [options]<input.pcl>output


       This  manual page documents briefly the cjet command.  This manual page
       was written for the Debian distribution because  the  original  program
       does not have a manual page.

       cjet  converts  the  common HP PCL page description language to Canon’s
       CaPSL, which was used in the mid-1990s by some  Canon  laser  printers.
       It  is  normally  used  as  part  of  a printer filter script, like the
       Foomatic system.


       -h     Show summary of options.

       -f     Use full  paint  mode  instead  of  partial  paint  mode.   This
              requires  the  printer to have at least 1.5 MB of memory to work

       -p     Ignore paper size commands.  Useful for printing files formatted
              for paper size X on printers with paper size Y.

       -q     Quiet mode. Suppresses all warning messages.

       -x X   Shift output on paper by X dots horizontally. Positive values of
              X shift to the right; negative values to  the  left.   Dots  are
              1/300 inch (0.085 mm).

       -y Y   Shift output on paper by Y dots vertically. Positive values of Y
              shift downwards; negative values shift upwards.
