       lj250of - LJ250 Companion Color Printer Filter

       /usr/lib/lpdfilters/lj250of  [-c]  [-nlogin] [-hhost] [-wwidth] [-lnum]
       [-iindent]  [accounting file]

       The filter is used to filter text data destined for the LJ250 Companion
       Color  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 comple‐
       tion for each job.

       The filter can handle plain ASCII files, nroff files, and sixel	files.
       If  the	printer	 is in HP HCL mode, the filter should be invoked using
       the lpr -x option.  The filter translates nroff control	sequences  for
       underlining,  superscripting,  and  subscripting into the correct LJ250
       control 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  is  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 are 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  Documents,
       Volume 2: Programmer.

       The  filter ignores the arguments passed to it by the line printer dae‐
       mon, lpd(8).  The of filter is called with the following arguments:

       lj250of -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 following arguments:

       lj250of -c -nlogin -hhost -wwidth -lnum -iindent	 accounting file

       The  lf	field (default /dev/null) in the database specifies error log‐
       ging file name.
