       grolbp is a driver for groff that produces output in CAPSL and VDM for‐
       mat suitable for Canon LBP-4 and LBP-8 printers.

       For  compatibility  with	 grolj4 there is an additional drawing command

       \D'R dh dv'
	      Draw a rule (i.e. a solid black rectangle), with one  corner  at
	      the  current position, and the diagonally opposite corner at the
	      current position +(dh,dv).

       Note that there can be whitespace between a one-letter option  and  its
       argument;  on  the other hand, there must be whitespace and/or an equal
       sign (`=') between a long-name option and its argument.

	      Print numcopies copies of each page.

	      Print the document with a landscape orientation.

	      Set the paper size to paper_size, which must be  a  valid	 paper
	      size description as indicated in the section PAPER SIZES.

	      Print  the  document with orientation orientation, which must be
	      `portrait' or `landscape'.

	      Print the version number.

	      Prepend directory dir/devlbp to the search  path	for  font  and
	      device description files.

       --help Print a short help text.

       The  driver  supports  the Dutch, Swiss and Swiss-Narrow scalable type‐
       faces, each one in the Regular, Bold, Italic  and  Bold-Italic  styles.
       Additionally, the Courier and Elite monospaced typefaces at the sizes 8
       and 12 points (for Courier) resp. 8 and 10 points (for Elite) are  sup‐
       ported, each one in the Regular, Bold and Italic styles.

       The  following  chart  summarizes  the font names you can use to access
       these fonts:

	  │   Typeface	   │  Regular  │  Bold	│  Italic  │  Bold-Italic │
	  │ Dutch	   │	TR     │   TB	│    TI	   │	  TBI	  │
	  │ Swiss	   │	HR     │   HB	│    HI	   │	  HBI	  │
	  │ Swiss Narrow   │	HNR    │  HNB	│   HNI	   │	 HNBI	  │
	  │ Courier	   │	CR     │   CB	│    CI	   │		  │
	  │ Elite	   │	ER     │   EB	│    EI	   │		  │
       The paper size can be set in the DESC file or with command line options
       to  grolbp.  If the paper size is specified both ways, the command line
       options take precedence over  the  contents  of	the  DESC  file	 (this
       applies to the page orientation too).

       To set the paper size in the DESC file, insert in that file a line con‐
       taining papersize desired_papersize, where desired_papersize is:

       ·   One of the recognized  paper	 sizes:	 `a4',	`letter',  `legal'  or

       ·   A custom defined paper size, as described in the CUSTOM PAPER SIZES
	   subsection below.

       ·   The name of a file (e.g.  /etc/papersize) whose first line must  be
	   the desired paper size in one of the above formats.

       If  there  are various papersize lines in the DESC file, only the first
       valid one is used.

       To set the paper size in the command line, add

	 -p desired_papersize



       to the other grolbp options, where desired_papersize  is	 in  the  same
       format as in the DESC file.

       Paper sizes are case insensitive (i.e., `A4' is the same as `a4').

       If  no  paper size is specified in the DESC file or the command line, a
       default size of A4 is used.

	      Custom defined paper sizes  are  in  the	form  custlengthxwidth
	      where  length and width are the dimensions of the paper you want
	      to to use, specified in printer units (1/300 of an  inch).   For
	      instance, to print in a postcard sized paper which is two inches
	      long and four inches wide you can insert a line containing

		papersize cust600x1200

	      at the beginning of the DESC file.

       As with the page size, the orientation of the printed page (portrait or
       landscape)  can	be  set in the DESC file or with command line options.
       It is also case insensitive.

       To set the orientation in the DESC file, insert a line with the follow‐
       ing content:

	 orientation [portrait|landscape]

       As  with	 paper	sizes, only the first valid orientation command in the
       DESC file is used.

       To set the page orientation with command line options you can  use  the
       -o  or --orientation option with the same parameters (portrait or land‐
       scape) as in the DESC file.  Or you can use the -l option to force  the
       pages to be printed in landscape.

       In  addition  to	 the usual commands described in groff_font(5), grolbp
       provides the command lbpname which sets	the  font  name	 sent  to  the
       printer when requesting this font.  The syntax of this command is:

	 lbpname printer_font_name

       ·      For bitmapped fonts, printer_font_name has the form


	      base_fontname  is	 the  font  name as it appears in the printers
	      font listings without the first letter, up to (but  not  includ‐
	      ing)  the font size.  font_style can be one of the letters R, I,
	      or B, indicating the font styles Roman, Italic and Bold  respec‐

	      For  instance,  if  the  printer's  font	listing	 A  shows font
	      `Nelite12I.ISO_USA',  the	 corresponding	entry  in   the	  font
	      description file is

		lbpname NeliteI

	      Note  that  you may need to modify grolbp to add support for new
	      bitmapped fonts, since the available font names and  font	 sizes
	      of bitmapped fonts (as documented above) are hard-coded into the

       ·      For scalable fonts, printer_font_name is identical to  the  font
	      name as it appears in the printer's font listing A.

	      For  instance,  to  select the `Swiss' font in bold style, which
	      appears in the printer's font listing  A	as  `Swiss-Bold',  the
	      required lbpname command line is

		lbpname Swiss-Bold

       The argument of lbpname is case sensitive.

	      Device description file.

	      Font description file for font F.
