-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].

1 upper 4 manual
2 lower 7 auto
-t

Draft mode.  Every other pixel is white.

-T density

Print density (1-5).  The default is 3 (medium).

-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 foo2zjs 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].

0 don't send any logical clipping amounts
1 only send Y clipping amount
2 only send X clipping amount
3 send 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.

-z model

Model. Default is 0.

0 KM 2300DL / HP 1000 / HP 1005
1 HP 1018 / HP 1020 / HP 1022
2 HP Pro P1102 / P1566 / P1606dn
3 HP Pro CP1025

Debugging Options

These options are used for debugging foo2zjs.

-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.

1 Cyan
2 Magenta
3 Yellow
4 Black
-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  
| foo2zjs -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  
| foo2zjs -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p1 >testpage.zc
