       foo2slx-wrapper - Convert Postscript into a SLX printer stream

       foo2slx-wrapper [options] [ps-file]

       foo2slx-wrapper	is  a  Foomatic	 compatible  printer  wrapper  for the
       foo2slx printer driver.	This script  reads  a  Postscript  ps-file  or
       standard	 input	and  converts  it to Software Imaging K.K. SLX printer
       format for driving the Lexmark C500 network  color  laser  printer  and
       other SLX-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

   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  [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.
	      foo2slx-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

   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 foo2slx 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:

	      foo2slx-wrapper >
	      slxdecode <
	      lpr -P raw

       Create a color ZjStream stream from a Postscript document:

	      foo2slx-wrapper -c > testpage.zc


       foo2slx(1), slxdecode(1)
