NAME

  ln03rof, ln05rof, ln06rof, ln07rof, ln08rof, ln09of, ln14of, ps_level1of,
  ps_level2of -	ASCII to PostScript translation	filter

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/lbin/ln03rof [-n	login] [-h host] [-w pagewidth]	[...]
  [accounting_file]

OPTIONS

  -h host
      Specifies	the host name of the job owner.

  -i indent
      Specifies	the amount of indentation.

  -l page_length
      Specifies	the page length	in lines.

  -n login
      Specifies	the login name of the job owner

  -o output_tray
      Selects the output tray where the	printed	job will be deposited.	Refer
      to the lpr(1) reference page for more information.

  -w page_width
      Specifies	the page width in columns. If the value	is greater than	80
      the filter will switch to	landscape printing.

  -I input_tray
      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.

  -K sides
      Prints the job in	a way specified	by the sides variable. The available
      options are:

      one     Print only on one	side of	the sheet.

      two     Prints on	both sides of the sheet.

  -O orientation
      Prints the page in the way specified by the orientation variable.	 The
      available	options	are:

      portrait
	  The printed output is	parallel to the	short side of the page.

      landscape
	  The printed output is	parallel to the	long side of the page.

  -S paper_type
      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:


	   :if=/usr/lbin/ln03rof -Sa4:

      The default value	is letter.

  OPERANDS


  accounting file
      Specifies	the file in which accounting information will be recorded.

DESCRIPTION

  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
  Encoding.

  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
  accounting file.

  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.
