       foo2hiperc-wrapper - Convert Postscript into a HIPERC printer stream

       foo2hiperc-wrapper [options] [ps-file]

       foo2hiperc-wrapper  is  a  Foomatic  compatible printer wrapper for the
       foo2hiperc printer driver.  This script reads a Postscript  ps-file  or
       standard	 input	and  converts  it to the Oki HIPERC printer format for
       driving the Oki C310dn, C3100, C3200, C3300n, C3400n,  C5100n,  C5500n,
       C5600n and the C5800n HIPERC 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

	      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 foo2hiperc 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].

       -l xoffxyoff
	      Set the offset of the end of the printable region from the lower
	      right corner, in pixels [varies with paper size].

       -L mask
	      Send  the	 logical  clipping  values  from  -u/-l	 in the HIPERC
	      stream.  foo2hiperc-wrapper always  runs	Ghostscript  with  the
	      ideal  page  dimensions,	so that the scale of the image is cor‐
	      rect, 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

       -z model
	      Model  is	  0   for   non-A3   sized   printers,	 and   1   for
	      A3/Tabloid/Ledger sized printers (i.e. C810, etc.).  The default
	      is 0.

       -Z compressed
	      Use uncompressed (0) or compressed (1) JBIG data.

   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 foo2hiperc 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 HIPERC stream from a Postscript  document,  examine
       it, and then print it using nc(1) or netcat(1):

	      foo2hiperc-wrapper > testpage.hc
	      hipercdecode < testpage.hc
	      nc 192.168.1.NNN 9100 < testpage.hc

       Create a color HIPERC stream from a Postscript document:

	      foo2hiperc-wrapper -c > testpage.hc


       foo2hiperc(1), hipercdecode(1)
