CJET(1) General Commands Manual CJET(1)

NAME

cjet - converts HP PCL to Canon CaPSL format

SYNOPSIS

cjet [options]<input.pcl>output

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the cjet command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.
cjet converts the common HP PCL page description language to Canon's CaPSL, which was used in the mid-1990s by some Canon laser printers. It is normally used as part of a printer filter script, like the Foomatic system.

OPTIONS

-h
Show summary of options.
-f
Use full paint mode instead of partial paint mode. This requires the printer to have at least 1.5 MB of memory to work correctly.
-p
Ignore paper size commands. Useful for printing files formatted for paper size X on printers with paper size Y.
-q
Quiet mode. Suppresses all warning messages.
-x X
Shift output on paper by X dots horizontally. Positive values of X shift to the right; negative values to the left. Dots are 1/300 inch (0.085 mm).
-y Y
Shift output on paper by Y dots vertically. Positive values of Y shift downwards; negative values shift upwards.
