DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The la84of filter is used to  filter  text  data  for  the
       Japanese  LA84  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  la84of  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
       LA84 printer.

       The la84of 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 printcap(4).

       The LA84-J printer can be configured to use  the  software
       on-demand  loading  (SoftODL)  mechanism  to  print  userdefined
 characters (UDCs). Refer to  i18n_printing(5)  for
       information about SoftODL.

       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.   See printcap(4) for detailed
       information on these fields and their associated  options.

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
       la84of 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.
