Create a black and white OAKT stream:

gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE  
    -sPAPERSIZE=letter -r600x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw  
    -sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps  
| foo2oak -r600x600 -g5100x6600 -p1 >testpage.oak

Create a color OAKT stream:

gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE  
    -sPAPERSIZE=letter -g5100x6600 -r600x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk
