  The ln05jaof filter is used to filter	text data for the Japanese DEClaser
  2300 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 ln05jaof filter can handle plain text files and files preprocessed by
  nroff. The filter translates nroff control sequences for underlining,
  superscripting, and subscripting into	the proper control sequences for the
  DEClaser 2300	printer.

  The ln05jaof 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 DEClaser 2300 printer can	be configured to use the software on-demand
  loading (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 ln05jaof	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.
