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


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

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

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

color ZJS streams, for driving the Minolta/QMS 2300 DL network color laser printer and
other Zenographics-based printers.

-n copies
Number of copies [1].

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

-s source
Source (InputSlot) code to send to printer [7].
│ │
│1 upper │ 4 manual
│2 lower │ 7 auto

-t Draft mode. Every other pixel is white.

-T density
Print density (1-5). The default is 3 (medium).

-J filename
Filename string to send to printer.

-U 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.

-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].

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

-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.

-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.

-X 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.

-z model
Model. Default is 0.

0 KM 2300DL / HP 1000 / HP 1005
1 HP 1018 / HP 1020 / HP 1022
2 HP Pro P1102 / P1566 / P1606dn
3 HP Pro CP1025

Debugging Options
These options are used for debugging foo2zjs.

-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 black and white ZJS stream:

-sPAPERSIZE=letter -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=pbmraw
-sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps
| foo2zjs -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p1 >testpage.zm

Create a color ZJS stream:

-sPAPERSIZE=letter -g10200x6600 -r1200x600 -sDEVICE=bitcmyk
-sOutputFile=- - < testpage.ps
| foo2zjs -r1200x600 -g10200x6600 -p1 >testpage.zc
