The la380cbof filter is used to filter text data for the LA380-CB printer.
The filter handles the device dependencies of the printer and performs
accounting functions. At print job completion times, accounting records are
written to the file specified by the af field in the /etc/printcap file.
The la380cbof filter can handle plain text files and files that have been
preprocessed by nroff. Either kind of file can contain non-ASCII charac-
ters. The la380cbof filter translates nroff control sequences for underlin-
ing, superscripting, and subscripting into the proper control sequences for
the LA380-CB printer.
The la380cbof filter can be the specified filter in both the of and the if
fields in the /etc/printcap file. For more information about these fields,
The LA380-CB printer can be configured to use the software on-demand load-

to i18n_printing(5) for a more detailed description SoftODL.
To enable SoftODL printing, set the ys field in /etc/printcap to be 256.
You may also set the default SoftODL database, style and size by specifying
the odldb and odlstyle options in the ya field. If you specify a value for
the yt field, specify fifo. See printcap(4) for more information about
these fields and associated options.
