       foo2qpdl-wrapper - Convert Postscript into a QPDL printer stream

       foo2qpdl-wrapper [options] [ps-file]

       foo2qpdl-wrapper	 is  a	Foomatic  compatible  printer  wrapper for the
       foo2qpdl printer driver.	 This script reads  a  Postscript  ps-file  or
       standard input and converts it to Samsung/Xerox QPDL printer format for
       driving the Samsung CLP-300,  CLX-2160,	CLX-3160,  CLP-315,  CLX-3175,
       CLP-600, CLP-610, CLP-620, CLP-360, CLP-365, and Xerox Phaser 6110 QPDL

       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 foo2qpdl 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 QPDL  stream.
	      foo2qpdl-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
	      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

   Color Tweaking Options
       These  are  the	options	 used  to control the quality of color output.
       Color correction is currently a WORK IN PROGRESS.

       -a parm=val
	      Color Adjust.  parm is b, c, s, cr, mg, yb for brightness,  con‐
	      trast,  saturation, cyan-red balance, magenta-green balance, and
	      yellow-blue balance.  val is 0 to	 100.	Multiple  options  are
	      allowed.	 The  default is "-ab=50 -ac=50 -as=50 -acr=50 -amg=50
	      -ayb=50".	 This only works when the -z3 (e.g. CLP-365) model  is

       -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 foo2qpdl 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 QPDL stream from a Postscript document, examine it,
       and then print it using a RAW print queue:

	      foo2qpdl-wrapper >
	      qpdldecode <
	      lpr -P raw

       Create a color QPDL stream from a Postscript document:

	      foo2qpdl-wrapper -c > testpage.zc


       foo2qpdl(1), qpdldecode(1)
