DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  la380of  filter  is used to filter Japanese text data
       for the LA380  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 la380of filter can handle plain text files  and  files
       that have been preprocessed by nroff.  Either kind of file
       can contain non-ASCII characters.  The  filter  translates
       nroff  control  sequences for underlining, superscripting,
       and subscripting into the proper control sequences for the
       LA380 printer.

       The la380of 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-J printer can be configured to use the software
       on-demand  loading  (SoftODL)  mechanism  to  print  userdefined
  characters (UDCs). For a description of the SoftODL
 mechanism, refer to i18n_printing(5).  To enable SoftODL
  printing,  set  the ys value 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.
       Refer to printcap(4) for more information on these fields.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       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
       la380of 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 lpr(1).

ERRORS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The   lf   field  (default  value  is  /dev/null)  in  the
       /etc/printcap file specifies the name of the error log.
