/usr/lbin/ln03rof [-n login] [-h host] [-w pagewidth] [...]
Specifies the host name of the job owner.
Specifies the amount of indentation.
Specifies the page length in lines.
Specifies the login name of the job owner
Selects the output tray where the printed job will be deposited. Refer
to the lpr(1) reference page for more information.
Specifies the page width in columns. If the value is greater than 80
the filter will switch to landscape printing.
Selects the input paper tray that supplies paper for the print job. The
tray names are printer dependent. Refer to the lpr(1) reference page
for more information.
Prints the job in a way specified by the sides variable. The available
one Print only on one side of the sheet.
two Prints on both sides of the sheet.
Prints the page in the way specified by the orientation variable. The
available options are:
The printed output is parallel to the short side of the page.
The printed output is parallel to the long side of the page.
Specifies the size of the paper. The available sizes are: letter or A4.
This switch is specified after the filter specification in the
/etc/printcap file. For example:
The default value is letter.
Specifies the file in which accounting information will be recorded.
The ln03rof and related filters translate ASCII to PostScript, handles the
device dependencies of a PostScript printer and performs some accounting
functions. PostScript printers print documents formatted in the PostScript
page description language only.
The ln03rof_isolatin1 and ln03rof_decmcs filters are alternatives to
ln03rof and affect how ASCII documents are printed. They cause the encod-
ing for ISO Latin1 or DEC MCS to be used instead of the Adobe Standard
The ln03rof filter will not translate PostScript documents. The decision to
translate a file is based on the first two characters in the document. If
they are %!, the filter assumes the document has already been formatted in
PostScript. If the first two characters are not %!, the filter assumes that
the document is plain ASCII and translates it into PostScript. The ln03rof
filter maintains accounting information only for documents that it
translates. The af field in the /etc/printcap file is used to specify the
It is recommended that the ln03rof filter be specified for both the of and
the if fields in the /etc/printcap file. For a description of these
fields, see the printcap(4) reference page.
