NAME
       canonize	- queue	a pix file to a	printer	using MDQS

SYNOPSIS
       canonize	[-ah] [-s squarefilesize]
		[-w filewidth] [-n fileheight]
		[-g [cg	| rgb |	scan]]
		[-t [u | l | m]] [-C numcopies]	[-q queue]
		[-R dpi] [-M xmag:ymag]	[-m]
		[-X page_xoff] [-Y page_yoff]
		[-N printheight] [-W printwidth]
		[-v] [-q queue]	[file.pix...]

DESCRIPTION
       Canonize	is a user agent	for printing pix(5) format files using a
       Canon(tm) CLC500	and the	MDQS queuing system. It	can read the image
       from the	standard input,	or can send one	or more	files whose names are
       specified on the	command	line.

       By default, the image is	printed	using the "cg" gamma map (computer
       graphics), with paper from the "upper" paper tray, and the image
       proportionally scaled to	fill the print area on the page.

OPTIONS
       -a
	   Causes canonize to attempt to determine the size of the image to
	   find	out the	number of bytes	in the file. This option cannot	be
	   used	if the image is	provided on the	standard input.

       -h
	   indicates that the input image is 1024 pixels square.

       -s squaresize
	   sets	the image width	and height to the size given.

       -w filewidth
	   sets	the image width	to be filewidth	pixels.	By default the image
	   is assumed to be 512	pixels wide.

       -n fileheight
	   specifies the height	of the image in	pixels.	By default the image
	   is assumed to be 512	pixels wide.

       -g gammatype
	   Select the gamma correction map to apply to the image before
	   printing. There are three gamma compensation	maps in	the CLC500.
	   Canon recommends the	"cg" map for computer graphics images which
	   have	not been gamma corrected. The "rgb" gamma map is said to be
	   designed for	images which have already been gamma corrected.	The
	   "scan" gamma	map is the one used by the CLC500 when printing	images
	   obtained from the built in scanner.

       -t trayname
	   selects the tray from which paper should be taken to	produce	the
	   print. The options are "u" for the upper tray, "l" for the lower
	   tray, and "m" for manual feed.

       -C numcopies
	   Specifies the number	of prints of the image desired.	This number
	   must	be in the range	1-99.

       -q queuename
	   queue job to	MDQS queue "queuename".	By default, the	job is queued
	   to the queue	"canon".

       -R dpi
	   Print image with dpi	dots-per-inch on the output page. This option
	   disables the	automatic scaling of the image.

       -M xmag:ymag
	   Print the image with	a magnification	of "xmag" in the X dimension
	   and "ymag" in the y dimension.

       -X page_xoff
	   Specifies the offset	of left	side of	the image from the left	side
	   of the output page. This option is available	only when -R or	-M
	   have	been specified,	and are	especially useful in conjunction with
	   the -m option.

       -Y page_xoff
	   Specifies the distance from the top of the page to the top of the
	   image. This option is available only	when -R	or -M have been
	   specified, and are especially useful	in conjunction with the	-m
	   option.

       -N
	   Specifies the height	of the image on	the output page. This option
	   is available	only when -A AutoScaling (on by	default). The image is
	   scaled equally in the X and Y dimensions to make it fit the
	   available print area	as closely as possible.	 -R or -M have been
	   specified, and are especially useful	in conjunction with the	-m
	   option.

       -W
	   Specifies the width of the image on the output page.	This option is
	   available only when -R or -M	have been specified, and are
	   especially useful in	conjunction with the -m	option.

       -m
	   causes the image to be repeated across the page.

       -v
	   Turn	on debugging output.

NOTES
       The Canon CLC500(tm) prints at 400dpi on	the output page. This results
       in approximately	2550 by	3300 pixels on an 8.5 inch by 11 inch page.
       Images of less than 1024	by 1024	pixels do not look especially pleasing
       when printed using AutoScaling. This is because the pixels become
       enlarged	enough to be annoying.

       Because high resolution images occupy a substantial amount of disk
       space, it is relatively easy to run the MDQS queue server out of	disk
       space by	queuing	many images at once.

DIAGNOSTICS
       If the -a option	is specified when the image is being redirected	from
       the standard input canonize will	abort. This avoids wasting paper
       printing	an image using incorrect dimensions.
