Program descriptions
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

RasterDump:
~~~~~~~~~~~
Source code included (SASC 6.0).
Tool to test the printer output.
It prints some information about the driver, like the following:

Printer: 'printer.device' 39.06
Port   : 'parallel.device' 40.01
Driver : 'HP_DeskJet560C KCMY' 35.02
PrinterClass=3, ColorClass=4
MaxColumns=80, NumCharSets=3, NumRows=1
MaxXDots=2400, MaxYDots=3000
XDotsInch=300, YDotsInch=300

During the printout, it shows the progression of the work.
This is a tip never documented... A stop button can cancel the work
with AbortIO() function.

Known bugs: under AmigaOS 3.1, the palette is limited to 12 bits.
(printer.device use GetRGB4 internally to render)

DirectDump:
~~~~~~~~~~~
Source code included (SASC 6.0)
Prints QRT files, with 24 bit printing, even with classic printer.device
and classic printer drivers. QRT files are used in early versions of povray.

You can build some calibration files from existing ones on internet and
convert them in QRT file.
These files are too huge to be present in this archive (up to 25MBytes 
for 2400x3600pixels) 
DirectDump is done for that: printing very huge RGB files, via classic
printer.device, but without any intermediate rastport.

colorwheel (and colorwheel2) prints... a color wheel to test your
printer output.
Without file specified, DirectDump draw the same picture as RasterDump,
certainly with wrong size, but with a 8x8 matrix instead 4x4.
You can magnify the output using the ZOOM attribute.


usbprint:
~~~~~~~~~
Source code included (SASC 6.0)
This tool send a file to the first usb (7,1,x) printer interface found.
Perhaps it's buggy, the source code is included (SASC 6.0 + OS4.0 includes).
usbprint <filename> check debug
The file must be specific to the printer, no conversion are done.
usbprint list
List the usb printers present.

ieee1284.device:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Source code included (SASC 6.0 + 3.1 includes + usb 4.x includes)
It is a device used to send data via the first usb (7,1,x) printer interface
found.
Perhaps it's buggy, the source code is included (SASC 6.0 + OS4.0 includes).
First you must have a compatible driver, process like for a parallel printer.
ANAIIS stack can redirect parallel.device to ieee1284.device.
Should work with (7,1,1) and (7,1,2) interfaces.
Surely not compatible with (7,1,3) (aka DOT4)
To see such interfaces, check for usbstat in ANAIIS package, or usblist on
aminet.


HP_DeskJet560C:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It's a 1.3 and higher printer driver able to separate K and CMY
values, to preserve color ink cardridge and make cute graphics (sorry not
pictures :) ).
Works with Hewlett Packard HP DeskJet 560C but also on most PCL3 compatible
printers (the list is too long to be there)
Tested with success with DeluxePaint, PPaint and Brillance.
Able to compress data with
byterun1 (compression mode 2) algorithm.
samebyte (compression mode 1) algorithm.
raw (mode 0)
copy HP_DeskJet560C in devs:printers and select this printer in the preferences.


Future
~~~~~~
pfff...
