NAME

foo2zjs - Convert Ghostscript pbmraw or bitcmyk format into a ZJS printer stream

SYNOPSIS

foo2zjs [options] <pbmraw-file >zjs-file foo2zjs [options] <bitcmyk-file >zjs-file foo2zjs [options] <pksmraw-file >zjs-file

DESCRIPTION

foo2zjs converts Ghostscript pbmraw, bitcmyk, or pksmraw output formats to monochrome or color ZJS streams, for driving the Minolta/QMS 2300 DL network color laser printer and other Zenographics-based printers.

COMMAND LINE OPTIONS

Normal Options

These are the options used to select the parameters of a print job that are usually controlled on a per job basis.
I -c
Force color mode if autodetect doesn't work.
I -d\0 duplex
Duplex code to send to printer [1]. | n l | n l | n l . 1 off 2 long edge 3 short edge
I -g\0 xpix x ypix
Set page dimensions in pixels [10200x6600].
I -m\0 media
Media code to send to printer [1]. l l l l n n. _ Media 2300DL 2200DL _ standard 1 1 transparency 2 2 envelope 257 na letterhead 259 na thick 261 4 postcard 262 na labels 263 3
I -p\0 paper
Paper code to send to printer [1]. | n l | n l. 1 letter 9 A4 5 legal 11 A5 7 executive 13 B5
I -n\0 copies
Number of copies [1].
I -r\0 xres x yres
Set device resolution in pixels/inch [1200x600].
I -s\0 source
Source (InputSlot) code to send to printer [7]. 1 upper 4 manual 2 lower 7 auto
I -J\0 filename
Filename string to send to printer.
I -U\0 username
Username string to send to printer.

Printer Tweaking Options

These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2zjs for a particular printer.
I -u\0 xoff x yoff
Set the offset of the start of the printable region from the upper left corner, in pixels [0x0].
I -l\0 xoff x yoff
Set the offset of the end of the printable region from the lower right corner, in pixels [0x0].
I -L\0 mask
Send logical clipping amounts implied by -u/-l in the ZjStream [3]. l l. 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
I -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.
I -A
AllIsBlack: convert C=1,M=1,Y=1 to just K=1. Works with bitcmyk input only.
I -B
BlackClears: K=1 forces C,M,Y to 0. Works with bitcmyk input only.
I -X\0 padlen
Add extra zero padding to the end of BID segments. The default is 16 bytes. Padding 16 bytes of zeroes is needed for older ZjStream printers, such as the Minolta 2200DL and HP LaserJet 1000, and seems harmless to newer ones, such as the Minolta 2300DL. So the default should be good for all cases.

Debugging Options

These options are used for debugging foo2zjs.
I -S\0 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. l l. 1 Cyan 2 Magenta 3 Yellow 4 Black
I -D\0 level
Set Debug level [0].

EXAMPLES

Create a black and white ZJS stream:
gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE      -sPAPERSIZE=letter -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw      -sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps  | foo2zjs -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p1 >testpage.zm
Create a color ZJS stream:
gs -q -dBATCH -dSAFER -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE      -sPAPERSIZE=letter -g10200x6600 -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk      -sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps  | foo2zjs -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p1 >testpage.zc
