       foo2oak-wrapper - Convert Postscript into an OAKT printer stream

       foo2oak-wrapper [options] [ps-file]

       foo2oak-wrapper	is  a  Foomatic	 compatible  printer  wrapper  for the
       foo2oak printer driver.	This script  reads  a  Postscript  ps-file  or
       standard	 input	and  converts it to Oak Technology OAKT printer format
       for  driving  the  HP  Color  LaserJet  1500  laser  printer,   Kyocera
       KM-1636/KM-2035 copiers, and other OAKT-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 foo2oak 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 OAKT stream.
	      foo2oak-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

       -z model
	      Model is 0 for the HP Color LaserJet 1500, and 1 for the Kyocera
	      KM-1635/KM-2035 copiers.	The default is 0.

   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 foo2oak 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 OAKT stream from a Postscript document, examine it,
       and then print it using a RAW print queue:

	      foo2oak-wrapper > testpage.oak
	      oakdecode < testpage.oak
	      lpr -P raw testpage.oak

       Create a color OAKT stream from a Postscript document:

	      foo2oak-wrapper -c > testpage.oak


       foo2oak(1), oak(1)
