(v13) Override pagebuffer type

This page applies to Harlequin v13.1r0 and later; and to Harlequin Core but not Harlequin MultiRIP

The -o switch can be used to override the value of /PageBufferType in the selected configuration file. The available options for /PageBufferType are: DEMOTIFF , FRAMETIFF , HVDNONE , HVDRAW , JPEG , LIBTIFF , LIBTIFFPS , None , PCL5 , PCL6 , RAW , TIFF , and WINPRINT . All of DEMOTIFF , FRAMETIFF , LIBTIFF , LIBTIFFPS and TIFF use the LIBTIFF backend; see (v13) Output methods

The command-line argument is useful during integration and development as it can help to reduce the number of configuration files required. For example, to test the CMYKComposite300dpi configuration with both TIFF and PCL5 output, only one configuration file is required, rather than two. If the configuration file has /TIFF set as the /PageBufferType (the default), you can perform the PCL5 test by using the same configuration file and adding the -o PCL5 option to the clrip command line.

Once an integration is productized, however, it is recommended that the PageBufferType and OutputTarget page device parameters are used instead of the -o and -u command-line parameters; see In particular, those command-line parameters will not work with Harlequin Scalable RIP.

Example usage:

clrip -c RGBComposite300dpi -o PCL5 myfile.pdf
