The la380cbof filter is used to filter text data for the
LA380-CB 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
The la380cbof filter can handle plain text files and files
that have been preprocessed by nroff. Either kind of file
can contain non-ASCII characters. The la380cbof filter
translates nroff control sequences for underlining, superscripting,
and subscripting into the proper control
sequences for the LA380-CB printer.
The la380cbof filter can be the specified filter in both
the of and the if fields in the /etc/printcap file. For
more information about these fields, see printcap(4).
The LA380-CB printer can be configured to use the software
on-demand loading (SoftODL) mechanism to print the user

more detailed description SoftODL.
To enable SoftODL printing, set the ys field in
/etc/printcap to be 256. You may also set the default
SoftODL database, style and size by specifying the odldb
