hbpldecode — Decode a HBPL stream into human readable form.

Synopsis

hbpldecode [options] <hbpl-file

Description

hbpldecode decodes a HBPL stream into human readable form. HBPL is Host Based Printer Language.

There are two versions of HBPL in existence.

Version one is an HBPL stream with JBIG2 (?) data. This data is used by the Dell 1250c, Dell C1660w, Epson AcuLaser C1700, Fuji-Xerox cp105b, and similar printers. These printers are unsupported.

Version two is an HBPL stream with JBIG encoded data. This data is used by the Xerox WorkCentre 6015, Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM205, Dell 1355c, and similar printers. These printers are supported by foo2hbpl2-wrapper et al.

Both versions can be decoded by hbpldecode.

Command Line Options

-d basename
Basename of .pbm file for saving decompressed planes.
-h
Print hex file offsets.
-o

-D level
