  The ln03jaof filter is used to filter	text data for the LN03S-JA 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 ln03jaof 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
  LN03S-JA printer.

  The ln03jaof filter can be the specified filter in both the of and the if
  fields in the	/etc/printcap file. For	a description of these fields, see

  The LN03S-JA printer can be configured to use	the software on-demand load-
  ing (SoftODL)	mechanism to print user-defined	characters (UDCs). See
  i18n_printing(5) for a description of	SoftODL.

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


  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 ln03jaof	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.
