foo2xqx is an open source printer driver for printers that use the HP/Software
Imaging "XQX" stream wire protocol for their print data, such as the HP
LaserJet P1005, HP LaserJet P1006, HP LaserJet P1505, and the HP LaserJet M1005
MFP, 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, "XQX" printers are raster printers which happen to
use a very efficient wire protocol which was developed by HP/Software Imaging.
"XQX" is just one of many wire protocols that are in use today, such as
Postscript, PCL, Epson, ZjStream, etc.
