       foo2hiperc-wrapper - Convert Postscript into a HIPERC printer stream

       foo2hiperc-wrapper [options] [ps-file]

       foo2hiperc-wrapper  is  a  Foomatic compatible printer wrapper for the foo2hiperc printer driver.  This script reads a Post‐
       script ps-file or standard input and converts it to the Oki HIPERC printer format for driving the Oki C310dn, C3100,  C3200,
       C3300n, C3400n, C5100n, C5500n, C5600n and the C5800n HIPERC printers.

       This  script  can be used in a standalone fashion, but is intended to be called from a printer spooler system which uses the
       Foomatic printer database.

   Printer Tweaking Options
       These are the options used to customize the operation of foo2hiperc for a particular printer.

       -u xoffxyoff
              Set the offset of the start of the printable region from the upper left corner, in pixels [varies with paper size].

       -l xoffxyoff
              Set the offset of the end of the printable region from the lower right corner, in pixels [varies with paper size].

       -L mask
              Send the logical clipping values from -u/-l in the HIPERC stream.  foo2hiperc-wrapper always  runs  Ghostscript  with
              the  ideal  page dimensions, so that the scale of the image is correct, regardless whether or not the printer has un‐
              printable regions.  This option is used to move the position of the clipped image back to where  it  belongs  on  the
              page.  The default is to send the amount which was clipped by -u and -l, and should be good in most cases.

              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

       -z model
              Model  is  0 for non-A3 sized printers, and 1 for A3/Tabloid/Ledger sized printers (i.e. C810, etc.).  The default is

       -Z compressed
              Use uncompressed (0) or compressed (1) JBIG data.

   Color Tweaking Options
       These are the options used to control the quality of color output.  Color correction is currently a WORK IN PROGRESS.

       -g gsopts
              Additional options to pass to Ghostscript, such as -g“-dDITHERPPI=nnn”, etc.  This option may appear more than once.

       -G profile.icm
              Convert profile.icm to a Postscript color rendering dictionary (CRD) using foo2zjs-icc2ps and adjust the printer col‐
              ors by using the Postscript setcolorrendering operator.  (WORK IN PROGRESS).

              Prepend to the Postscript input to perform color correction using the setcolortransfer Postscript oper‐
              ator.  For example, the file might contain:
              {0.333 exp} {0.333 exp} {0.333 exp} {0.333 exp} setcolortransfer

       -I intent
              Select profile intent from the ICM file.  0=Perceptual, 1=Colorimetric, 2=Saturation, 3=Absolute.  Default is 0 (per‐

   Debugging Options
       These options are used for debugging foo2hiperc and its wrapper.

       -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.

              1   Cyan
              2   Magenta
              3   Yellow
              4   Black

       -D level
              Set Debug level [0].

       Create a monochrome HIPERC stream from a Postscript document, examine it, and then print it using nc(1) or netcat(1):

              foo2hiperc-wrapper > testpage.hc
              hipercdecode < testpage.hc
              nc 192.168.1.NNN 9100 < testpage.hc

       Create a color HIPERC stream from a Postscript document:

              foo2hiperc-wrapper -c > testpage.hc


       foo2hiperc(1), hipercdecode(1)
