SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

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

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       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  options are: Print only on one side of the
       sheet.  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:

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

              The default value is letter.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       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 encoding 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.
