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 Postscript 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.


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 Print in color (else monochrome).

-C colormode
Color correction mode [0].

10 ICM color profile (using -G *.icm file)

-d duplex
Duplex code to send to printer [1].
│ │ │
│1 off │ 2 long edge │ 3 short edge

-m media
Media code to send to printer [0].

plain 0
labels 1
transparency 2

-p paper
Paper size code to send to printer [2].

│ 1 A4 │ 2 letter │
│ 3 legal │ - - │
│ 5 A5 │ 6 B5jis │
│ 7 A6 │ 8 env Monarch │
│ 9 env DL │ 10 env C5 │
│11 env #10 │ 12 executive │
│13 env #9 │ 14 legal 13.5" │
│15 A3 │ 16 tabloid/ledger │
-n copies
Number of copies [1].

-r xresxyres
Set device resolution in pixels/inch [600x600].

-s source
Source (Input Slot) code to send to printer [0].
│ │
│0 auto select │
│1 tray1 │ 2 tray2
│3 multi │ 4 manual

-t Draft mode. Every other pixel is white.

-2 -3 -4 -5 -6 -8 -9 -10 -12 -14 -15 -16 -18
Print in N-up. Requires the psutils package.

-o orient
Orientation used for N-up.

Portrait -op (normal)
Landscape -ol (rotated 90 degrees anticlockwise)
Seascape -os (rotated 90 degrees clockwise)

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

-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 unprintable
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 0.

-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 colors by using the Postscript setcolorrendering
operator. (WORK IN PROGRESS).

-G gamma-file.ps
Prepend gamma-file.ps to the Postscript input to perform color correction using the
setcolortransfer Postscript operator. 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 (perceptual).

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.ps > 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.ps > testpage.hc
