foo2qpdl [options] qpdl-file


foo2qpdl converts Ghostscript pbmraw, bitcmyk, or pksmraw output for‐
mats to monochrome or color QPDL streams, for driving the Samsung
CLP-300, CLX-2160, CLP-600, CLX-3160, CLP-610 CLP-620, CLP-360,
CLP-365, and the Xerox Phaser 6110 QPDL printers.

Printer Tweaking Options
These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2qpdl for a
particular printer.

-a b,c,s,cr,mg,yb
Color Adjust: brightness, contrast, saturation, cyan-red bal‐
ance, magenta-green balance, and yellow-blue balance from 0 to
100. The default is 50,50,50,50,50,50. This only works when
the -z3 (e.g. CLP-365) model is set!

-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 QPDL
stream [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

-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

-z model
Printer model. Model 0 is the default.

model Description
0 CLP-300, CLX-2160, CLX-3160
1 CLP-600
2 CLP-310, CLP-315, CLP-610, CLX-3175
3 CLP-620, CLP-360, CLP-365

Debugging Options
These options are used for debugging foo2qpdl.

-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].

Create a black and white QPDL stream:

-sPAPERSIZE=letter -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw
-sOutputFile=- – < | foo2qpdl -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p0 >

Create a color QPDL stream:

-sPAPERSIZE=letter -g10200x6600 -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk
-sOutputFile=- – < | foo2qpdl -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p0 >testpage.zc
