NAME

foo2zjs-wrapper – Convert Postscript into a ZJS printer stream

SYNOPSIS

foo2zjs-wrapper [options] [ps-file]

DESCRIPTION

foo2zjs-wrapper is a Foomatic compatible printer wrapper for the
foo2zjs printer driver. This script reads a Postscript ps-file or
standard input and converts it to Zenographics ZjStream printer format
for driving the Minolta/QMS 2300 DL network color laser printer and
other Zenographics-based printers.

This script can be used in a standalone fashion, but is intended to be
called from a printer spooler system which uses the Foomatic printer
database.

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 [varies with paper size]. The
defaults should work on the 2200DL and 2300DL, and have not been
tested on any other printers.

-l xoffxyoff
Set the offset of the end of the printable region from the lower
right corner, in pixels [varies with paper size]. The defaults
should work on the 2200DL and 2300DL, and have not been tested
on any other printers.

-L mask
Send the logical clipping values from -u/-l in the ZjStream.
foo2zjs-wrapper always runs Ghostscript with the ideal page
dimensions, so that the scale of the image is correct, regard‐
less whether or not the printer has unprintable regions. This
option is used to move the position of the clipped image back to
where it belongs on the page. The default is to send the amount
which was clipped by -u and -l, and should be good in most
cases.

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 monochrome-only printers, such as the HP LaserJet
1000.

-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

Color Tweaking Options
These are the options used to control the quality of color output.
Color correction is currently a WORK IN PROGRESS.

-g gsopts
Additional options to pass to Ghostscript, such as
-g“-dDITHERPPI=nnn”, etc. This option may appear more than
once.

-G profile.icm
Convert profile.icm to a Postscript color rendering dictionary
(CRD) using foo2zjs-icc2ps and adjust the printer colors by
using the Postscript setcolorrendering operator. (WORK IN
PROGRESS).

-G gamma-file.ps
Prepend gamma-file.ps to the Postscript input to perform color
correction using the setcolortransfer Postscript operator. For
example, the file might contain:
{0.333 exp} {0.333 exp} {0.333 exp} {0.333 exp} setcolortransfer

-I intent
Select profile intent from the ICM file. 0=Perceptual, 1=Col‐
orimetric, 2=Saturation, 3=Absolute. Default is 0 (perceptual).

Debugging Options
These options are used for debugging foo2zjs and its wrapper.

-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 monochrome ZjStream from a Postscript document, examine it,
and then print it using a RAW print queue:

foo2zjs-wrapper testpage.ps > testpage.zm
zjsdecode < testpage.zm lpr -P raw testpage.zm Create a color ZjStream stream from a Postscript document: foo2zjs-wrapper -c testpage.ps > testpage.zc
