CAN(1) CAN(1) NAME can, bcan, dcan, tcan, xcan - interface to Canon laser- printer spooler SYNOPSIS can [ option ... ] [ file ... ] bcan [ option ... ] [ file ... ] dcan [ option ... ] [ file ... ] tcan [ option ... ] [ file ... ] xcan [ option ... ] [ file ... ] DESCRIPTION These commands print files (standard input by default) on Canon laser printers. Four commands, all special cases of the generic xcan, handle particular kinds of data files: can ASCII text bcan bitmap images created by blitblt(9.1) dcan output from troff(1) tcan output for a Tektronix 4014 terminal, as produced by plot(1) The destination printer is determined in the following ways, listed in order of decreasing precedence. Printer names are given in candest(7). option -d dest environment variable CANDEST printer named in file /etc/candest Options: -d dest select the destination printer, see candest(7). -f font set the font (default CW.11) for can, see font(7). -L (landscape) rotate bcan pages 90 degrees. -l n set number of lines per page for can (default 66). -m n set bcan magnification (default 2). -n spool only, input has already been formatted by a CAN(1) CAN(1) remote xcan. -o list print only pages whose page numbers appear in the comma-separated list of numbers and ranges. A range n-m means pages n through m; a range -n means from the beginning to page n; a range n- means from page n to the end. -o implies -r. -r print pages in reverse order (default for can and dcan). -sb make xcan expect bcan input; -sb implies defaults of -x176 and -y96. -sc make xcan expect can input; -sc does not imply -r. -sd make xcan expect dcan input; -sd does not imply -r. -st make xcan expect tcan input. -t n tcan scale factor is (n/100)/(n%100). The default is 813, i.e., 13 tekpoints become 8 dots on the laser printer. -u user set the name which appears on the banner page; default is login name. -x n set the horizontal offset of the print image, mea- sured in dots (default 48). There are 240 dots to the inch. -y n set the vertical offset of the print image (default 0), except in tcan, where this option specifies n extra tekpoints vertically. FILES /etc/candest default destination /usr/can/font font directory /usr/spool/jpd spool directory SEE ALSO blitblt(9.1), plot(1), pr(1), revpag(1), troff(1), cand- est(7), font(7) BUGS The `landscape' option is supported only by bcan; -o and -r are supported only by can and dcan. There ought to be a way to determine the service class from the input data.
