NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       thailpof - Generic filter for printing Thai text files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /usr/lbin/thailpof  [-c]  [-h  host]  [-H] [-i indent] [-l
       length]  [-n  login]  [-P  printer_id]  [-S]  [-w   width]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Prints control characters.  Specifies the host name of the
       job owner. This name can contain Thai characters.  Enables
       half-height printing mode.  In printers without a one-pass
       printing mode, Thai characters are printed on 3 levels, or
       3 lines.  When half-height printing mode is enabled, the 3
       levels are  printed  in  1.5  lines,  which  improves  the
       appearance  of  output.   The  cost of this improvement is
       slower printing speed.  Specifies the amount  of  indentation.
 The default value is no (no indentation).  Specifies
       the page length in lines. The default value is 22.  Specifies
  the  login name of the job owner. This name can contain
 Thai characters.  Specifies the  printer  ID  in  the
       format  that  conforms  to  the Wototo Specification. This
       format is [bb][mm][nn] where: Is the brand ID,  representing
 the brand of the printer.  Is the model ID, representing
 the model of the printer.  Is the code ID,  specifying
       the  character  code  used by the printer.  Enables spacecompensation
 mode.  Many of the existing  tools  for  text
       alignment  cannot  handle  nonspacing characters properly.
       When printing output from such tools, enabling  space-compensation
  mode improves alignment of output text.  Specifies
 the page width in columns. The default value is 80.

OPERANDS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Specifies the file to record accounting information.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The thailpof filter is a generic  print  filter  for  Thai
       text files.  The filter handles the device dependencies of
       printers and performs accounting functions.  At print  job
       completion  times,  accounting  records are written to the
       file specified by the af field in /etc/printcap.

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

       The  thailpof  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).

       To  print  Thai  characters  on the flag page using 3-pass
       mode, you must specify /usr/lbin/thailpof in the of  field
       of  the  /etc/printcap  file. In 3-pass mode, however, the
       flag page is not printed on one page.  Therefore,  if  you
       do  not plan to print Thai characters on the flag page, or
       if  you  are  using  one-pass   mode,   do   not   specify
       /usr/lbin/thailpof in the of field.

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
       thailpof filter: To specify one-and-a-half  line  printing
       To  enable  space-compensation mode.  To specify the pathname
 of the character code table

       For a complete description of this option and its  associated
 arguments or values, 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.
