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

       For compatibility with grolj4 there is an additional draw­
       ing command available:

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


       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.

              Print numcopies copies of each page.

              Print the document with a landscape orientation.

              Set  the  paper size to paper_size, which must be a
              valid paper size description as  indicated  in  the
              section PAPER SIZES.

              Print  the  document  with orientation orientation,
              which must be `portrait' or `landscape'.

              Print the version number.


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

    |   Typeface     |  Regular  |  Bold  |  Italic  |  Bold-Italic |
    | Dutch          |    TR     |   TB   |    TI    |      TBI     |
    | Swiss          |    HR     |   HB   |    HI    |      HBI     |
    | Swiss Narrow   |    HNR    |  HNB   |   HNI    |     HNBI     |
    | Courier        |    CR     |   CB   |    CI    |              |
    | Elite          |    ER     |   EB   |    EI    |              |


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

       To  set  the  paper  size in the DESC file, insert in that
       file a line containing papersize desired_papersize,  where
       desired_papersize is:

       ·   One  of  the  recognized  paper sizes: `a4', `letter',
           `legal' or `executive'.

       ·   A custom defined paper size, as described in the  CUS­
           TOM PAPER SIZES subsection below.

       ·   The  name of a file (e.g.  /etc/papersize) whose first
           line must be the desired paper  size  in  one  of  the
           above formats.

       If  there  are  various  papersize lines in the DESC file,
       only the first valid one is used.

       To set the paper size in the command line, add

         -p desired_papersize



       to the other grolbp options, where desired_papersize is in
       the same format as in the DESC file.
              is two inches long and four  inches  wide  you  can
              insert a line containing

                papersize cust600x1200

              at the beginning of the DESC file.


       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]

       As with paper sizes, only the first valid orientation com­
       mand 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.


       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


              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 respec­

              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 sup­

       The argument of lbpname is case sensitive.
