ibm5587G [ -FDirectory] [ -quietly] [File ...]
The ibm5587G command processes the output of the troff command for output to the 5587-G01, 5584-H02, 5585-H01, 5587-H01, and 5589-H01 printers.
If given one or more files as options, the ibm5587G command processes those files. If no files are specified, it acts as a filter interpreting standard input.
Note: The ibm5587G command assumes that the (32x32/24x24) cartridge is installed in the printer. Incorrect output from the printer may result if the wrong cartridge is installed in the printer.
The ibm5587G command depends on the files with names ending in .out in the /usr/lib/font/devibm5587G directory. It does not produce reasonable output unless these files have been properly set up.
|-FDirectory||Specifies a directory name as the place to find the font files. By default, the ibm5587G command looks for font files in the /usr/lib/font/devibm5587G directory.|
|-quietly||Suppresses all nonfatal error messages.|
|/usr/lib/font/devibm5587G/*.out||Contains font files.|
The troff command formats text for printing on typesetting devices.
