       foo2hp2600-wrapper - Convert Postscript into a ZJS printer stream

       foo2hp2600-wrapper [options] [ps-file]

       foo2hp2600-wrapper  is  a  Foomatic  compatible printer wrapper for the
       foo2hp printer driver.  This script reads a Postscript ps-file or stan‐
       dard  input and converts it to Zenographics ZjStream printer format for
       driving the Hewlett-Packard 2600n color laser printer and  other	 Zeno‐
       graphics-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

   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  [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.
	      foo2hp2600-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

       -O parm=val
	      Alignment of CMYK.  parm is c, m, y, or  k.   val	 is  in	 rows.
	      Multiple options are allowed.  The default is "-Oc=0 -Om=0 -Oy=0

       -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: Model: 0=HP CLJ 1600/2600n; 1=HP CLJ CP1215

   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.	If profile.icm
	      is none.icm, then prepare for ordering a ICM custom printer pro‐
	      file (i.e. from

	      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 foo2hp 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:

	      foo2hp2600-wrapper >
	      zjsdecode <
	      lpr -P raw

       Create a color ZjStream stream from a Postscript document:

	      foo2hp2600-wrapper -c > testpage.zc


       foo2hp(1), zjsdecode(1)
