Printer Tweaking Options

These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2qpdl for a particular printer.

-a b,c,s,cr,mg,yb
Color Adjust: brightness, contrast, saturation, cyan-red balance, magenta-green balance, and yellow-blue balance from 0 to 100. The default is 50,50,50,50,50,50. This only works when the -z3 (e.g. CLP-365) model is set!
-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 QPDL stream [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
-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.
-z model

Printer model. Model 0 is the default.

Examples

Create a black and white QPDL stream:

gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE  
    -sPAPERSIZE=letter -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw  
    -sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps  
| foo2qpdl -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p0 >testpage.zm

Create a color QPDL stream:

gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE  
    -sPAPERSIZE=letter -g10200x6600 -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk
