description by inserting the line command (-Ilines).
If a BS code is found at the beginning of a line, the print position of the next character will be on the left of the
beginning of a line.
When there are multiple tab codes in one line, the positions of tab may be off due to automatic line feed. If this
happens, specify the -l or -w option.
The number of columns specified by the -w option does not reflect the number of characters actually printed. The
actual number of single-byte characters to be printed is derived by deducting the output column position (out
columns) specified by the o option from the number of columns specified by the w option.
The -mg option cannot be specified when -w, -l, -o, and -L option are specified.
The start positions of margins of the margin command (-mg=u:b:r:l) are not set against the edge of paper. The
margins are set against the printable area for paper allowed by the printer.
Use the -ps option only when a PostScript file that contains no %! at the beginning of the file is used as the
PostScript file. If a normal text file is input, it will not function correctly.
To use the same options as those of the dellpsif filter by TXT2PS2OPTION, set the user's home directory in the
environmental variable HOME. If the environmental variable HOME is not set up, the same options as those of the
dellpsif filter cannot be used. (Linux)
Using sunras2ps2/tiff2ps2/xwd2ps2 (sunras2ps2 apply to Solaris only)
If the same option is specified, or if s, S are both specified, the one specified later will prevail.
If the size option (s, S) is not specified, scaling will be executed taking one pixel of the image data as one pixel of
If the print position option (-l left bottom) specifies a point beyond the printable area of the printer, data beyond
the printable area will not be printed.
Using tiff2ps2 (Solaris/HP-UX)
There are four types of supported compression formats.
Huffman compression (CCITT Group 3 transformed Huffman run length encoding)
Fax-CCITT3 compression (facsimile-compatible CCITT Group 3)
Even if the format is a supported format, the tiff that has multiple images in one file is not supported.
Using xwd2ps2 (Solaris/ HP-UX)
There are three types of supported compression formats.
The visual class is Static Gray and the pixel is 1 bit.
The visual class is Pseudo Color and the pixel is 4 bits or 8 bit. The image format is Zpixmap.
The visual class is True Color and the pixel is 24 bits. The image format is Zpixmap.
Printing PostScript Files (Solaris/ HP-UX)
If same options for the PostScript file that contains options, such as paper size, are specified using dellpsif (Linux)
or the lp command (Solaris/HP-UX), the specified option will be ignored.
