foo2hp(1)							     foo2hp(1)

       foo2hp  -  Convert  Ghostscript	pbmraw	or  bitcmyk  format into a ZJS
       printer stream

       foo2hp [options] <pbmraw-file >zjs-file

       foo2hp [options] <bitcmyk-file >zjs-file

       foo2hp [options] <cups-file >zjs-file

       foo2hp converts Ghostscript pbmraw, bitcmyk, or cups output formats  to
       monochrome  or color ZJS streams, for driving the Hewlett-Packard 2600n
       color laser printer and other Zenographics-based 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
	      Duplex code to send to printer [1].

   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 [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

       -O c,m,y,k
	      Alignment of CMYK in rows. The default is 0,0,0,0.

       -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.

   Debugging Options
       These options are used for debugging foo2hp.

       -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 -r600x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw
		  -sOutputFile=- - <
	      | foo2hp -r600x600 -g5100x6600 -p1 >

       Create a color ZJS stream:

	      gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE
		  -sPAPERSIZE=letter -g5100x6600 -r600x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk
		  -sOutputFile=- - <
	      | foo2hp -r600x600 -g5100x6600 -p1 >testpage.zc
