       lg02of - LG02 Matrix Line Printer

       /usr/lib/lpdfilters/lg02of  [-c]	 [-nlogin]  [-hhost] [-wwidth] [-lnum]
       [-iindent]  [accounting file]

       The filter is used to filter text  data	destined  for  the  LG02  line
       printer.	  The  filter  handles the device dependencies of the printers
       and performs accounting functions.  Accounting records are  written  to
       the  file  specified  by	 the af field in at the time of completion for
       each job.

       The filter can handle plain ASCII files and files that have  been  pre‐
       processed  by nroff.  The filter translates nroff control sequences for
       underlining, superscripting and subscripting into the correct LG02 con‐
       trol sequences.

       The filter can be the specified filter in both the of and the if fields
       in the file.  For further information, see When both fields are	speci‐
       fied  the  of filter is used only to print the banner page.  It is then
       stopped to allow the if filter access to the  printer.  The  if	filter
       maintains accounting information.

       If  the	of field is the only one specified the filter is used to print
       the banner page.	 It is then stopped and restarted.  This allows the of
       filter to be used to maintain accounting information.

       If  the if field is the only one specified the banner page will be sent
       directly to the printer. If the printer has been left  in  an  undeter‐
       mined state the banner page may not print correctly.

       The  best results will be obtained when the filter is specified in both
       the of and if fields.  For a more detailed discussion  on  filters  see
       the  ``Line  Printer Spooler Manual'' in the ULTRIX Supplementary Docu‐
       ments, Volume 2: Programmer.

       The arguments passed to the filter depend on its use.  The of filter is
       called with the following arguments:

       lg02of -wwidth -llength
	      The  width  and  length values come from the pw and pl fields in
	      the database. The if (or restarted of) filter is passed the fol‐
	      lowing arguments:

	lg02of -c -nlogin -hhost -wwidth -lnum -iindent	 accounting file
	      The  -c flag is optional, and supplied only when control charac‐
	      ters are to be printed, that is, when the -l option of  is  used
	      to  print	 the file. The -w and -l arguments are the same as for
	      the of filter, however, they may have different values if the -w
	      and/or  -z options of were used to print the file.  If the value
	      of the width is greater than 80 the job will be printed in land‐
	      scape  mode with a slightly smaller font. The length of the page
	      is assumed to be 66 regardless of the length specified.  The  -n
	      and -h arguments specify the login name and host name of the job
	      owner.  These arguments are used to record  accounting  informa‐
	      tion.  The  -i  option specifies the amount of indentation to be
	      used. The last argument is the name of the accounting file spec‐
	      ified from the af field in the database.

       Are sent to wherever specifies with the lf field.
