foo2qpdl

Convert Ghostscript pbmraw or bitcmyk format into a QPDL printer stream

foo2qpdl [options] <pbmraw-file >qpdl-file

foo2qpdl [options] <bitcmyk-file >qpdl-file

foo2qpdl [options] <pksmraw-file >qpdl-file

foo2qpdl converts Ghostscript pbmraw, bitcmyk, or pksmraw output formats 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.

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

-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 [0].

-p paper

Paper code to send to printer [0].

-n copies

Number of copies [1].

-r xresxyres

Set device resolution in pixels/inch [1200x600].

-s source

Source (InputSlot) code to send to printer [255].

-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 foo2qpdl for a particular printer.
-a
b,c,s,cr,mg,yb

Color Adjust: brightness, contrast, saturation, cyan-red balance, 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].

-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.

-z model

Printer model. Model 0 is the default.

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.

-D level

Set Debug level [0].

Create a black and white QPDL stream:

gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE  
-sPAPERSIZE=letter -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw  
-sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps  
| foo2qpdl -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p0 >testpage.zm

Create a color QPDL stream:

gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE  
-sPAPERSIZE=letter -g10200x6600 -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk  
-sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps  
| foo2qpdl -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p0 >testpage.zc
