       ln01of - LN01(S) laser printer filter

       /usr/lib/lpdfilters/ln01of  [-c]	 [-nlogin]  [-hhost] [-wwidth] [-lnum]
       [-iindent]  [accounting file]

       The filter is used to filter text data destined for the LN01 and	 LN01S
       laser  printers.	  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 and files that have  been  pre‐
       processed  by nroff.  Since nroff only deals with monospaced characters
       this limits the number of fonts that will work effectively.  The	 fonts
       and font selection files are in The ln01of filter translates nroff con‐
       trol  sequences	for  underlining  into	the  correct  LN01(S)  control
       sequences,  but cannot handle superscripting and subscripting.  It will
       pass through any escape or control sequences.

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

       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:

       ln01of -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:

       ln01of -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.	 The -n and -h
	      arguments specify the login name and host name of the job owner.
	      These arguments are used to record accounting  information.  The
	      -i  option  specifies the amount of indentation to be used.  The
	      last argument is the name of the accounting file specified  from
	      the af field in the database.

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