GROLJ4(1) General Commands Manual GROLJ4(1)

NAME

grolj4 - groff driver for HP LaserJet 4 family

SYNOPSIS

grolj4 [-l] [-c num-copies] [-d [n]] [-F font-directory] [-p paper-size] [-w line-width] [file ...]
grolj4 --help
grolj4 -v
grolj4 --version

DESCRIPTION

grolj4 is a driver for groff that produces output in PCL5 format suitable for an HP LaserJet 4 printer.

There is an additional drawing command available:

\D'R dh dv'
Draw a rule (solid black rectangle), with one corner at the current position, and the diagonally opposite corner at the current position +(dh,dv). Afterwards the current position will be at the opposite corner. This generates a PCL fill rectangle command, and so will work on printers that do not support HPGL/2 unlike the other \D commands.
