              [ --papersize=paper_size ] [ -oorientation ] [ --orientation=orientation ] [ -wwidth ]

DESCRIPTION
       grolbp  is  a  driver for groff that produces output in CAPSL and VDM format suitable for Canon LBP-4 and LBP-8
       printers.

       For compatibility with grolj4 there is an additional drawing command available:

       \D'R dh dv'
              Draw a rule (i.e. a solid black rectangle), with one corner at the current position, and the  diagonally
              opposite corner at the current position +(dh,dv).

OPTIONS
       Note  that  there can be whitespace between a one-letter option and its argument; on the other hand, there must
       be whitespace and/or an equal sign ('=') between a long-name option and its argument.

       -cnumcopies
       --copies=numcopies
              Print numcopies copies of each page.

       -l
       --landscape
              Print the document with a landscape orientation.

       -ppaper_size
       --papersize=paper_size
              Set the paper size to paper_size, which must be a valid paper size description as indicated in the  sec-
              tion PAPER SIZES.

       -oorientation
       --orientation=orientation
              Print the document with orientation orientation, which must be 'portrait' or 'landscape'.

       -wwidth
       --linewidth=width
              Set  the default line thickness to width thousandths of an em.  If this option isn't specified, the line
              thickness defaults to 0.04 em.

       -v
       --version
              Print the version number.

       -Fdir
       --fontdir=dir
              Prepend directory dir/devname to the search path for font and device description files; name is the name
              of the device, usually lbp.

       -h
       --help Print a short help text.

TYPEFACES
       The driver supports the Dutch, Swiss and Swiss-Narrow scalable typefaces, each one in the Regular, Bold, Italic
       and Bold-Italic styles.  Additionally, the Courier and Elite monospaced typefaces at the sizes 8 and 12  points
       (for Courier) resp. 8 and 10 points (for Elite) are supported, each one in the Regular, Bold and Italic styles.

       The following chart summarizes the font names you can use to access these fonts:

                              +----------------+-----------+--------+----------+--------------+

                              +----------------+-----------+--------+----------+--------------+

PAPER SIZES
       The paper size can be set in the DESC file or with command line options to grolbp.  If the paper size is speci-
       fied  both  ways,  the command line options take precedence over the contents of the DESC file (this applies to
       the page orientation too).

       See groff_font(1) how to set the paper dimensions in the DESC file.

       To set the paper size in the command line, add

         -p paper-size

       or

         --papersize=paper-size

       to the other grolbp options, where paper-size is in the same format as in the DESC file.

       If no paper size is specified in the DESC file or the command line, a default size of A4 is used.

PAGE ORIENTATION
       As with the page size, the orientation of the printed page (portrait or landscape) can be set in the DESC  file
       or with command line options.  It is also case insensitive.

       To set the orientation in the DESC file, insert a line with the following content:

         orientation [portrait|landscape]

       Only the first valid orientation command in the DESC file is used.

       To  set the page orientation with command line options you can use the -o or --orientation option with the same
       parameters (portrait or landscape) as in the DESC file.  Or you can use the -l option to force the pages to  be
       printed in landscape.

FONT FILE FORMAT
       In  addition  to  the usual commands described in groff_font(5), grolbp provides the command lbpname which sets
       the font name sent to the printer when requesting this font.  The syntax of this command is:

         lbpname printer_font_name

       ?      For bitmapped fonts, printer_font_name has the form

                N<base_fontname><font_style>

              base_fontname is the font name as it appears in the printers font listings without the first letter,  up
              to  (but  not including) the font size.  font_style can be one of the letters R, I, or B, indicating the
              font styles Roman, Italic and Bold respectively.

              For instance, if the printer's font listing A shows font 'Nelite12I.ISO_USA', the corresponding entry in
              the font description file is

                lbpname NeliteI

              Note that you may need to modify grolbp to add support for new bitmapped fonts, since the available font
              names and font sizes of bitmapped fonts (as documented above) are hard-coded into the program.

       ?      For scalable fonts, printer_font_name is identical to the font name as it appears in the printer's  font
              listing A.

              For instance, to select the 'Swiss' font in bold style, which appears in the printer's font listing A as
              'Swiss-Bold', the required lbpname command line is

                lbpname Swiss-Bold


       The argument of lbpname is case sensitive.
