foo2hp

Convert Ghostscript pbmraw or bitcmyk format into a ZJS printer stream

foo2hp [options] <pbmraw-file >zjs-file

foo2hp [options] <bitcmyk-file >zjs-file

foo2hp [options] <cups-file >zjs-file

foo2hp converts Ghostscript pbmraw, bitcmyk, or cups output formats to monochrome or color ZJS streams, for driving the Hewlett-Packard 2600n color laser printer and other Zenographics-based printers.

Normal Options
These are the options used to select the parameters of a print job that are usually controlled on a per job basis.
-b
bits

Bits per plane if autodetect doesn’t work (1 or 2) [1].

-c

Force color mode if autodetect doesn’t work.

-d duplex

Duplex code to send to printer [1].

-g xpixxypix

Set page dimensions in pixels [10200x6600].

-m media

Media code to send to printer [1].

-p paper

Paper code to send to printer [1].

-n copies

Number of copies [1].

-r xresxyres

Set device resolution in pixels/inch [600x600].

-s source

Source (InputSlot) code to send to printer [7].

-t

Draft mode. Every other pixel is white.

-J filename

Filename string to send to printer.

-U username

Username string to send to printer.

Printer Tweaking Options
These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2hp for a particular printer.
-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 ZjStream [3].

-O c,m,y,k

Alignment of CMYK in rows. The default is 0,0,0,0.

-P

Do not send START_PLANE codes on monochrome output. May be needed by some black and white only printers, such as the HP LaserJet 1000.

-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 only.

-X padlen

Add extra zero padding to the end of BID segments. The default is 16 bytes.

Debugging Options
These options are used for debugging foo2hp.
-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.

-D level

Set Debug level [0].

Create a black and white ZJS stream:

gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE  
-sPAPERSIZE=letter -r600x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw  
-sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps  
| foo2hp -r600x600 -g5100x6600 -p1 >testpage.zm

Create a color ZJS stream:

gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE  
-sPAPERSIZE=letter -g5100x6600 -r600x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk  
-sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps  
| foo2hp -r600x600 -g5100x6600 -p1 >testpage.zc
