The ln10jaof filter is used to filter text data for the DEClaser 2400 printer. The filter handles the device dependencies of the printer and performs accounting functions. At print job completion times, accounting records are written to the file specified by the af field in the /etc/printcap file.
The ln10jaof filter can handle plain text files and files that have been preprocessed by nroff. The filter translates nroff control sequences for underlining, superscripting, and subscripting into the proper control sequences for the DEClaser 2400 printer.
The ln10jaof filter can be the specified filter in both the of and the if fields in the /etc/printcap file. For a description of these fields, see printcap(4).
The DEClaser 2400 printer can be configured to use the software on-demand loading (SoftODL) mechanism to print user-defined characters (UDCs). See i18n_printing(5) for a description of SoftODL.
To enable SoftODL printing, set the ys field in /etc/printcap to 256. You can also set the default SoftODL database, style, and size by using the odldb and odlstyle options of the ya field. If you specify a value for the yt field, use fifo. For more information on these fields and associated options, refer to printcap(4).
The lpr command supports a number of flags and associated options to enable localization features supported by various printers. The following can be used with the ln10jaof filter: To specify the SoftODL database path To specify SoftODL font style and size Selects the input tray. Valid values are upper, lower, or manual.
For a complete description of these flags and associated options or values, refer to lpr(1).
The lf field (default value is /dev/null) in the /etc/printcap file specifies the name of the error log.
