foo2xqx-wrapper(1)					    foo2xqx-wrapper(1)

NAME
       foo2xqx-wrapper - Convert Postscript into a XQX printer stream

SYNOPSIS
       foo2xqx-wrapper [options] [ps-file]

DESCRIPTION
       foo2xqx-wrapper	is  a  Foomatic	 compatible  printer  wrapper  for the
       foo2xqx printer driver.	This script  reads  a  Postscript  ps-file  or
       standard input and converts it to XQX printer format for driving the HP
       LaserJet P1005/P1006/P1007/P1008, the HP LaserJet P1505, the HP	Laser‐
       Jet P2014, the HP LaserJet M1005 MFP, the HP LaserJet M1120 MFP, the HP
       LaserJet Pro M1212nf MFP, and other XQX-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
       database.

   Printer Tweaking Options
       These  are the options used to customize the operation of foo2xqx 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.
	      foo2xqx-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
	      cases.

	      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

   Debugging Options
       These options are used for debugging foo2xqx and its wrapper.

       -D level
	      Set Debug level [0].

EXAMPLES
       Create  a  monochrome  ZjStream from a Postscript document, examine it,
       and then print it using a RAW print queue:

	      foo2xqx-wrapper testpage.ps > testpage.xqx
	      xqxdecode < testpage.xqx
	      lpr -P raw testpage.xqx

FILES
