       foo2hbpl2-wrapper - Convert Postscript into a ZJS printer stream

       foo2hbpl2-wrapper [options] [ps-file]

       foo2hbpl2-wrapper  is  a	 Foomatic  compatible  printer wrapper for the
       foo2hbpl2 printer driver.  This script reads a  Postscript  ps-file  or
       standard	 input and converts it to Zenographics ZjStream printer format
       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.

       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 foo2hbpl2 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.
	      foo2hbpl2-wrapper	 always	 runs  Ghostscript with the ideal page
	      dimensions, so that the scale of the image is  correct,  regard‐
	      less  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

	      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.

   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=Col‐
	      orimetric, 2=Saturation, 3=Absolute.  Default is 0 (perceptual).

   Debugging Options
       These options are used for debugging foo2hbpl2 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:

	      foo2hbpl2-wrapper > testpage.prn
	      hbpl2decode < testpage.prn
	      lpr -P raw testpage.prn

       Create a color ZjStream stream from a Postscript document:

	      foo2hbpl2-wrapper -c > testpage.prn


       foo2hbpl2(1), hbpldecode(1)
