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
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.
