DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  la280of  filter  is  used to filter text data for the
       Japanese LA280 printer.  The  filter  handles  the  device
       dependencies  of the printer and performs accounting functions.
 At print job completion  time,  accounting  records
       are  written  to the file specified by the af field in the
       /etc/printcap file.

       The la280of filter can handle plain text files  and  files
       that have been preprocessed by nroff.  Either kind of file
       can  contain  non-ASCII  characters.  The  la280of  filter
       translates nroff control sequences for underlining, superscripting,
  and  subscripting  into  the  proper   control
       sequences for the LA280 printer.

       The la280of filter can be the specified filter in both the
       of and the if fields in the /etc/printcap file.  For  more
       information on these fields, see printcap(4).

       The  LA280-J printer can be configured to use the software
       on-demand  loading  (SoftODL)  mechanism  to  print  userdefined
  characters  (UDCs). See i18n_printing(5) for more
       information about SoftODL.

       To enable the SoftODL  mechanism,  set  the  ys  value  in
       /etc/printcap  to 256.  You can also set the default SoftODL
 database, style and size through the  odldb  and  odlstyle
  options for the ya field.  If you set the yt value,
       set it to fifo.  Refer to printcap(4) for more information
       on these fields and associated options.

ERRORS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /etc/printcap file specifies the name of the error log.
