pcfof(8)							      pcfof(8)

       pcfof  -	 Generic  print filter for ANSI, PCL, and multi-language Post‐
       Script printers

       /usr/lbin/pcfof +Bbanner-tray +Cfilename.pcf [-n login] [-h host] [...]

       Use  of the print options is dependent on the features available on the
       print device, and on the current status of those features.   For	 exam‐
       ple, selection of a particular paper size and orientation requires that
       appropriate paper is correctly loaded in the paper trays	 available  on
       the print device.

   Options in /etc/printcap
       Specifies the default tray name to select for printing the banner page.
       For example: :of=/usr/lbin/pcfof +Bupper +Cln17.pcf:\

	      In this example, the banner page will  be	 printed  on  whatever
	      paper  is	 currently  loaded into the upper tray on the selected
	      print device.  Specifies the name of the	printer	 configuration
	      file to use for this print job.  Specifies the default tray name
	      to   select   for	   printing    the    file.    For    example:
	      :if=/usr/lbin/pcfof  +Iupper  +Cln17.pcf:\ Specifies the default
	      tray name to select for printing the trailer page. For  example:
	      :of=/usr/lbin/pcfof +Tlower +Cln17.pcf:\

	      This  command  is	 useful	 of you want to use colored paper as a
	      divider between print jobs.  Specifies the default tray name  to
	      select	to    place    the   printed   pages.	For   example:
	      :if=/usr/lbin/pcfof +olower +Cln17.pcf:\

   Print Filter Options
       Specifies the host name of the job  owner.   Specifies  the  amount  of
       indentation.   This value controls how far the print image appears from
       the edge of the page.  Specifies the  login  name  of  the  job	owner.
       Specifies  the  tray  where  the	 printed  pages are placed. See the -I
       option for information on printer configuration files.	Specifies  the
       page  width  in columns.	 Selects printer features but does not perform
       any file processing.  Specifies the tray name from which print paper is
       selected.   To  find the available options, view the printer configura‐
       tion file (.pcf file) specified in the /etc/printcap  file  by  the  if
       entry. For example: :if=/usr/lbin/pcfof +Cln17.pcf:\

	      The ln17.pcf pcf file is located in /usr/lbin/pcf/ln17.pcf.  The
	      pcf file header provides	additional  information	 on  available
	      tray  options.   Specifies  the number of sides to print on each
	      sheet. You can specify sides as follows: Print on	 one  side  of
	      the sheet.  Print on both sides of the sheet.  Specifies options
	      related to page orientation and printing	of  text  files.   The
	      option-list  argument can include one option or multiple options
	      that are separated by commas (no embedded spaces).

	      The following settings for page orientation are valid  for  both
	      PostScript  or text files: The printed output is parallel to the
	      short side of the page.  The printed output is parallel  to  the
	      long side of the page.

	      The following options are available for printing text (not Post‐
	      Script) files: Print even numbered pages.	 Reduce the number  of
	      lines  on a page to n lines.  Print odd numbered pages.  Perform
	      codeset conversion if codeset-name is different from the codeset
	      component	 of  the current locale and if the appropriate codeset
	      converter is installed on the  system.  See  iconv_intro(5)  for
	      information about codeset conversion.  Print the pages of a file
	      within the start and end parameters. When start  is  not	speci‐
	      fied,  printing  starts  at  page	 0. When end is not specified,
	      printing continues to the end of the file.   [Tru64  UNIX]  Con‐
	      tinues  text  lines  that	 exceed the right hand margin.	[Tru64
	      UNIX]  Truncates text lines that exceed the right hand margin.

       The file header may specify additional printer-specific	options.  (See
       the description of the -I option for the location of files.)

       Specifies the file in which accounting information will be recorded.

       The  pcfof  filter is a generic print filter that can be used with text
       and PostScript files and handle printer device dependencies.  The  type
       of  printer  that the filter is supporting is determined by the printer
       configuration file (.pcf file) that is specified by the +C option.  The
       Tru64  UNIX  product includes files for a variety of printers. In addi‐
       tion, a template file (/usr/lbin/pcf/template.pcf) is available for the
       system administrator to customize for use with additional printers.

       The pcfof filter should be specified for both the of and the if entries
       in the /etc/printcap file.

       Use the wwpsof filter when you want to print  files  in	languages  for
       which  printer-resident fonts are not available. See the wwpsof(8) ref‐
       erence page for more information.

       An error has occurred.

       The /etc/printcap error log field, lf, is used to specify the  name  of
       the error log file.

       Commands:  cancel(1),  lpr(1),  pr(1), printer(1), pac(8), thailpof(8),
