foo2hbpl2(1)							  foo2hbpl2(1)

       foo2hbpl2  -  Convert  Ghostscript  pbmraw or bitcmyk format into a ZJS
       printer stream

       foo2hbpl2 [options] <pbmraw-file >hbpl2-file

       foo2hbpl2 [options] <bitcmyk-file >hbpl2-file

       foo2hbpl2 [options] <pksmraw-file >hbpl2-file

       foo2hbpl2 converts Ghostscript pbmraw, bitcmyk, or pksmraw output  for‐
       mats  to	 monochrome  or	 color HBPL version 2 streams, for driving the
       Dell 1355, Dell C1765,  Epson  AcuLaser	M1400,	Fuji  Xerox  DocuPrint
       CM205,  Fuji Xerox DocuPrint P205, Xerox WorkCentre 3045 MFP, and Xerox
       WorkCentre 6015 MFP printers.

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

       -c     Force color mode if autodetect doesn't work.

       -d duplex

	      envDL		       12

       -n copies
	      Number of copies [1].

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

       -s source
	      Source (InputSlot) code to send to printer [7].
	      │		 │
	      │1   upper │ 4   manual
	      │2   lower │ 7   auto

       -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 foo2hbpl2 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

	      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 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

       -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.

   Debugging Options
       These options are used for debugging foo2hbpl2.

       -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 black and white ZJS stream:

	      gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE
		  -sPAPERSIZE=letter -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw
		  -sOutputFile=- - <
	      | foo2hbpl2 -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p1 >

       Create a color ZJS stream:

	      gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE
		  -sPAPERSIZE=letter -g10200x6600 -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk
		  -sOutputFile=- - <
	      | foo2hbpl2 -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p1 >testpage.zc


       foo2hbpl2-wrapper(1), hbpldecode(1)
