foo2slx(1)							    foo2slx(1)

       foo2slx	-  Convert  Ghostscript	 pbmraw	 or  bitcmyk format into a SLX
       printer stream

       foo2slx [options] <pbmraw-file >slx-file

       foo2slx [options] <bitcmyk-file >slx-file

       foo2slx [options] <pksmraw-file >slx-file

       foo2slx converts Ghostscript pbmraw, bitcmyk, or pksmraw output formats
       to  monochrome  or color SLX streams, for driving the Lexmark C500 net‐
       work color laser printer and other SLZ-based printers.  The SLX	stream
       is a variant of ZjStream produced by Software Imaging K.K.

   Normal Options
       These are the options used to select the parameters of a print job that
       are usually controlled on a per job basis.

   Printer Tweaking Options
       These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2slx 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

       -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

	  Debugging Options
	      These options are used for debugging foo2slx.

       -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 SLX stream:

	      gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE
		  -sPAPERSIZE=letter -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw
		  -sOutputFile=- - <
	      | foo2slx -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p1 >

       Create a color SLX stream:

	      gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE
		  -sPAPERSIZE=letter -g10200x6600 -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk
		  -sOutputFile=- - <
	      | foo2slx -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p1 >testpage.zc
