foo2slx

Convert Ghostscript pbmraw or bitcmyk format into a SLX printer stream

foo2slx [options] <pbmraw-file >slx-file

foo2slx [options] <bitcmyk-file >slx-file

foo2slx [options] <pksmraw-file >slx-file

foo2slx converts Ghostscript pbmraw, bitcmyk, or pksmraw output formats to monochrome or color SLX streams, for driving the Lexmark C500 network color laser printer and other SLZ-based printers. The SLX stream is a variant of ZjStream produced by Software Imaging K.K.

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.

-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 [6].

-n copies

Number of copies [1].

-r xresxyres

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

-s source

Source (InputSlot) code to send to printer [0].

Printer Tweaking Options
These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2slx 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].

-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.

Debugging Options
These options are used for debugging foo2slx.

-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 SLX stream:

gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE  
-sPAPERSIZE=letter -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw  
-sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps  
| foo2slx -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p1 >testpage.zm

Create a color SLX stream:

gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE  
-sPAPERSIZE=letter -g10200x6600 -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk  
-sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps  
| foo2slx -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p1 >testpage.zc
