Package foo2oak

Linux printer driver for OAKT protocol (HPLJ1500 etc.)

foo2oak is a printer driver for printers that use the Oak Technology (now
Zoran) OAKT protocol for their print data, such as the HP Color LaserJet 1500,
Kyocera KM-1635 and the Kyocera KM-2035. These printers are often erroneously
referred to as winprinters or GDI printers. However, Microsoft GDI only
mandates the API between an application and the printer driver, not the
protocol on the wire between the printer driver and the printer. In fact, OAKT
printers are raster printers which happen to use a fairly efficient wire
protocol which was developed by Oak Technology and licensed by some printer
manufacturers for at least some of their product lines. OAKT is just one of
many wire protocols that are in use today, such as Postscript, PCL, Epson,
ZjStream, etc.
