       foo2zjs-wrapper - Convert Postscript into a ZJS printer stream


       foo2zjs-wrapper [options] [ps-file]


       foo2zjs-wrapper  is  a  Foomatic  compatible  printer  wrapper  for the
       foo2zjs printer driver.  This script  reads  a  Postscript  ps-file  or
       standard  input and converts it to Zenographics ZjStream printer format
       for driving the Minolta/QMS 2300 DL network  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

       -n copies
              Number of copies [1].

       -r xresxyres
              Set device resolution in pixels/inch [1200x600].

       -s source
              Source (Input Slot) code to send to printer [7].

              |1   upper | 4   manual
              |2   lower | 7   auto

       -t     Draft mode.  Every other pixel is white.

       -T density
              Print density (1-5).  The default is 3 (medium).

       -2 -3 -4 -5 -6 -8 -9 -10 -12 -14 -15 -16 -18
              Print in N-up.  Requires the psutils package.

       -o orient
              Orientation used for N-up.

              Portrait    -op   (normal)
              Landscape   -ol   (rotated 90 degrees anticlockwise)
              Seascape    -os   (rotated 90 degrees clockwise)

   Printer Tweaking Options
       These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2zjs 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.
              foo2zjs-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

       -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. Default is 0.

              0   KM 2300DL / HP 1000 / HP 1005
              1   HP 1018 / HP 1020 / HP 1022

   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.   (WORK  IN

              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 foo2zjs 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:

              foo2zjs-wrapper >
              zjsdecode <
              lpr -P raw

       Create a color ZjStream stream from a Postscript document:

              foo2zjs-wrapper -c > testpage.zc




       foo2zjs(1), zjsdecode(1)
