hbpldecode

Decode a HBPL stream into human readable form.

hbpldecode [options] <hbpl-file

hbpldecode decodes a HBPL stream into human readable form. HBPL is Host Based Printer Language.

There are two versions of HBPL in existence.

Version one is an HBPL stream with Huffman RLE data. This data is used by the Dell 1250c, Dell C1660w, Epson AcuLaser C1700, Fuji-Xerox cp105b, and similar printers. These printers are unsupported.

Version two is an HBPL stream with JBIG encoded data. This data is used by the Xerox WorkCentre 6015, Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM205, and the Dell 1355c. These printers are supported by foo2hbpl2-wrapper et al.

Both versions can be decoded by hbpldecode.

These are the options that can appear on the command line.
-d
basename

Basename of .pbm file for saving decompressed planes.

-h

Print hex file offsets.

-o

Print file offsets.

-D level

Set Debug level [0].
