Description         top

       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.

Options         top

       --help displays a usage message, while -v and --version show
       version information; all exit afterward.

       -c num-copies
              Print num-copies copies of each page.

       -l     Print the document with a landscape orientation.

       -d [n] Use duplex mode n: 1 is long-side binding; 2 is short-side
              binding; default is 1.

       -p paper-size
              Set the paper size to paper-size, which must be one of
              letter, legal, executive, a4, com10, monarch, c5, b5, dl.

       -w line-width
              Set the default line thickness to line-width thousandths
              of an em.  If this option isn't specified, the line
              thickness defaults to 0.04 em.

       -F font-directory
              Prepend directory font-directory/devname to the search
              path for font and device description files; name is the
              name of the device, usually lj4.

       The following four commands are available additionally in the
       font description files:

       pclweight N
              The integer value N must be in the range -7 to +7; default
              is 0.

       pclstyle N
              The integer value N must be in the range 0 to 32767;
              default is 0.

       pclproportional N
              A boolean flag which can be either 0 or 1; default is 0.

       pcltypeface N
              The integer value N must be in the range 0 to 65535;
              default is 0.
