  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,
  see printcap(4).

  The LA380-CB printer can be configured to use	the software on-demand load-
  ing (SoftODL)	mechanism to print the user defined characters (UDCs). Refer
  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.


  The lpr command supports a number of options and associated arguments	to
  enable localization features supported by various printers. The following
  can be used with the la380cbof print filter:


	  To specify the SoftODL database path

	  To specify SoftODL font style	and size

  For a	complete description of	the -A option and its arguments, refer to


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