       foo2qpdl	 -  Convert  Ghostscript  pbmraw or bitcmyk format into a QPDL
       printer stream

       foo2qpdl [options] <pbmraw-file >qpdl-file

       foo2qpdl [options] <bitcmyk-file >qpdl-file

       foo2qpdl [options] <pksmraw-file >qpdl-file

       foo2qpdl converts Ghostscript pbmraw, bitcmyk, or pksmraw  output  for‐
       mats  to	 monochrome  or	 color	QPDL  streams, for driving the Samsung
       CLP-300,	 CLX-2160,  CLP-600,  CLX-3160,	 CLP-610   CLP-620,   CLP-360,
       CLP-365, and the Xerox Phaser 6110 QPDL printers.

   Normal Options

       are usually controlled on a per job basis.

   Printer Tweaking Options
       These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2qpdl for a
       particular printer.

       -a b,c,s,cr,mg,yb
	      Color  Adjust:  brightness,  contrast, saturation, cyan-red bal‐
	      ance, magenta-green balance, and yellow-blue balance from	 0  to
	      100.   The  default  is 50,50,50,50,50,50.  This only works when
	      the -z3 (e.g. CLP-365) model is set!

       -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  QPDL
	      stream [3].

	      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

       -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

       -z model
	      Printer model. Model 0 is the default.

	      model   Description
	      0	      CLP-300, CLX-2160, CLX-3160
	      1	      CLP-600
	      2	      CLP-310, CLP-315, CLP-610, CLX-3175
	      3	      CLP-620, CLP-360, CLP-365

   Debugging Options
       These options are used for debugging foo2qpdl.

       -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 QPDL stream:

	      gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE
		  -sPAPERSIZE=letter -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw
		  -sOutputFile=- - <
	      | foo2qpdl -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p0 >

       Create a color QPDL stream:

	      gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE
		  -sPAPERSIZE=letter -g10200x6600 -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk
		  -sOutputFile=- - <
	      | foo2qpdl -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p0 >testpage.zc
