DESCRIPTION

  The la380kof filter filters text data	for the	LA380-K	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 la380kof 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 filter translates nroff control sequences for underlining, super-
  scripting, and subscripting into the proper control sequences	for the
  LA380-K printer.

  The la380kof filter can be the specified filter in both the of and the if
  fields in the	/etc/printcap file. For	more information on these fields, see
  printcap(4).

  The LA380-K 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 a more complete description of SoftODL.

  To enable SoftODL printing, set the ys value in /etc/printcap	to 256.	 You
  can also set the default SoftODL database, style and size by using the
  odldb	and odlstyle options in	the ya field.  If you specify a	value for the
  yt field, use	fifo.  Refer to	printcap(4) for	more information on these
  fields and associated	options.

NOTES

  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 la380kof	print filter:

  -A

      odldb
	  To specify the SoftODL database path

      odlstyle
	  To specify SoftODL font style	and size

  For a	complete description of	the -A option and its arguments, refer to
  lpr(1).

ERRORS

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