Command Line Options

Normal Options

These are the options used to select the parameters of a print job that are usually controlled on a per job basis.

-c
Force color mode if autodetect doesn't work.
-d duplex

Duplex code to send to printer [1].

1off2long edge3short edge
-g xpixxypix
Set page dimensions in pixels [10200x6600].
-m media

Media code to send to printer [1].

-n copies
Number of copies [1].
-r xresxyres
Set device resolution in pixels/inch [1200x600].
-s source

Source (InputSlot) code to send to printer [7].

-t
Draft mode. Every other pixel is white.
-J filename
Filename string to send to printer.
-U username
Username string to send to printer.

Printer Tweaking Options

These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2hbpl2 for a particular printer.

-u xoffxyoff
Set the offset of the start of the printable region from the upper left corner, in pixels [0x0].
-l xoffxyoff
Set the offset of the end of the printable region from the lower right corner, in pixels [0x0].
-L mask

Send logical clipping amounts implied by -u/-l in the ZjStream [3].

0don't send any logical clipping amounts
1only send Y clipping amount
2only send X clipping amount
3send both X and Y clipping amounts
-P
Do not send START_PLANE codes on monochrome output. May be needed by some black and white only printers, such as the HP LaserJet 1000.
-A
AllIsBlack: convert C=1,M=1,Y=1 to just K=1. Works with bitcmyk input only.
-B
BlackClears: K=1 forces C,M,Y to 0. Works with bitcmyk input only.
-X padlen
Add extra zero padding to the end of BID segments. The default is 16 bytes. Padding 16 bytes of zeroes is needed for older ZjStream printers, such as the Minolta 2200DL and HP LaserJet 1000, and seems harmless to newer ones, such as the Minolta 2300DL. So the default should be good for all cases.

Debugging Options

These options are used for debugging foo2hbpl2.

-S plane

Output just a single color plane from a color print and print it on the black plane. The default is to output all color planes.

1Cyan
2Magenta
3Yellow
4Black
-D level
Set Debug level [0].

Examples

Create a black and white ZJS stream:

gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE  
    -sPAPERSIZE=letter -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw  
    -sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps  
| foo2hbpl2 -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p1 >testpage.zm

Create a color ZJS stream:

gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE  
    -sPAPERSIZE=letter -g10200x6600 -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk  
    -sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps  
| foo2hbpl2 -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p1 >testpage.zc
