       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 informa‐
       tion.   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 par‐
       allel 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.

       Specifies the file in which accounting information will be recorded.

       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	 deci‐
       sion  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/print‐
       cap 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.
