  The cp382dof filter is used to filter	text data destined for the CP382
  printer controller. The filter handles the device dependencies of the
  printers and performs	accounting functions. At the time of completion	for
  each print job, accounting records are written to the	file specified by the
  af field of the printer's entry in /etc/printcap.

  The filter can handle	plain ASCII and	Chinese	text files and files that
  have been preprocessed by nroff. The cp382dof	filter translates nroff	con-
  trol sequences for underlining, superscripting, and subscripting into	the
  proper CP382 control sequences.

  The cp382dof filter can be the specified filter in both the of and the if
  fields in the	/etc/printcap file. For	further	information, see printcap(4).

  The CP382-D printer can be configured	to use the software on-demand loading
  (SoftODL) mechanism to print user-defined characters (UDCs). Refer to
  i18n_printing(5) for more details on SoftODL.

  To enable SoftODL printing, you should set the ys value in /etc/printcap to
  800.	You can	also set the default SoftODL database, style, and size by
  using	the odldb and odlstyle options in the ya value.	 The yt	value, if
  set, should be fifo.	Refer to printcap(4) for information on	setting	these


  The lpr command supports a number of options and associated options to
  specify localization features	supported by various printers.	The lpr(1)
  reference page provides a complete list of these options and options.	 The
  following ones can be	specified for the CP382	printer	controller:


	  To specify the SoftODL database path

      odlstyle option
	  To specify SoftODL font style	and size


  The cp382dof filter always assumes that 4-byte characters are	printed
  without leading code.	The printer hardware should be set as such to avoid
  any formatting problems.


  The lf field (default	value is /dev/null) in the /etc/printcap file speci-
  fies the name	of the error logging file.
