NAME
lp -- parallel line printer
SYNOPSIS
lp0 at uba0 csr 0177514 vector lpintr
DESCRIPTION
NOTE: This driver has not been ported from 4.4BSD yet. The lp device supports DEC and DEC compatible printers on the LP-11 par- allel interface. The unit number of the printer is specified by the minor device after removing the low 3 bits, which act as per-device parameters. Currently only the lowest of the low three bits is interpreted: if it is set, the device is assumed to have a 64-character set or half-ASCII mode, rather than a full 96-character set. If the 64-character set is assumed, any lower case characters are mapped to upper case; left curly and right curly braces are mapped to left and right parentheses over laid with a hyphen; grave accents are mapped to acute accents with overlaid with a hyphen; the pipe bar character is mapped to an exclamation sign overlaid with a hyphen; and the tilde char- acter is mapped to a carat overlaid with a hyphen. The default page width is 132 columns; longer lines are truncated. This may be overridden by specifying, for example, `flags 256'.
