           grolbp is a driver for groff that produces output in CAPSL and VDM for-
           mat suitable for Canon LBP-4 and LBP-8 printers.
           For  compatibility  with  grolj4 there is an additional drawing command
           \D'R dh dv'
                  Draw a rule (i.e. a solid black rectangle), with one  corner  at
                  the  current position, and the diagonally opposite corner at the
                  current position +(dh,dv).


           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'.
                  Set the default line thickness to width thousandths  of  an  em.
                  If  this  option isn't specified, the line thickness defaults to
                  0.04 em.
                  Print the version number.
           and  12 points (for Courier) resp. 8 and 10 points (for Elite) are sup-
           ported, each one in the Regular, Bold and Italic styles.
           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 ap-
           plies to the page orientation too).
           See groff_font(1) how to set the paper dimensions in the DESC file.
           To set the paper size in the command line, add
             -p paper-size
           to the other grolbp options, where paper-size is in the same format  as
           in the DESC file.
           If  no  paper size is specified in the DESC file or the command line, a
           default size of A4 is used.


           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 follow-
           ing content:
             orientation [portrait|landscape]
           ?      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 includ-
                  ing) 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 de-
                  scription file is
                    lbpname NeliteI
                  Note that you may need to modify grolbp to add support  for  new
                  bitmapped  fonts,  since the available font names and font sizes
                  of bitmapped fonts (as documented above) are hard-coded into the
           ?      For  scalable  fonts, printer_font_name is identical to the font
                  name as it appears in the printer's font listing A.
                  For instance, to select the 'Swiss' font in  bold  style,  which
                  appears in the printer's font listing A as 'Swiss-Bold', the re-
                  quired lbpname command line is
                    lbpname Swiss-Bold
           The argument of lbpname is case sensitive.
