       foo2hp2600-wrapper - Convert Postscript into a ZJS printer stream


       foo2hp2600-wrapper [options] [ps-file]


       foo2hp2600-wrapper  is  a  Foomatic  compatible printer wrapper for the
       foo2hp printer driver.  This  script  reads  a  Postscript  ps-file  or
       standard  input and converts it to Zenographics ZjStream printer format
       for driving the Hewlett-Packard 2600n color  laser  printer  and  other
       Zenographics-based 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

   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  [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.
              foo2hp2600-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

       -O parm=val
              Alignment of CMYK.  parm is c, m, y, or  k.   val  is  in  rows.
              Multiple options are allowed.  The default is "-Oc=0 -Om=0 -Oy=0

       -P     Do not send START_PLANE codes  on  monochrome  output.   May  be
              needed by some monochrome-only printers, such as the HP LaserJet

       -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.

       -z model
              Model: Model: 0=HP CLJ 1600/2600n; 1=HP CLJ CP1215

   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

       -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.  If profile.icm
              is none.icm, then prepare for  ordering  a  ICM  custom  printer
              profile (i.e. from

              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

   Debugging Options
       These options are used for debugging foo2hp 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:

              foo2hp2600-wrapper >
              zjsdecode <
              lpr -P raw

       Create a color ZjStream stream from a Postscript document:

              foo2hp2600-wrapper -c > testpage.zc




       foo2hp(1), zjsdecode(1)
