To run the Harlequin Core test harness (clrip):
- You may have to run
chown -Ron the installed SDK folder.
- Start a terminal window and a command prompt.
- Change directory to the folder where the RIP was installed. For example, the default folder is /home/username/
- Change directory into the
/binfolder, which contains the clrip executable.
- To verify the installation and LDK key, run the command
- A list of output options will be displayed. For information see "Advanced usage" (below).
The simplest way to rip a job with Harlequin Core is to run
clrip, as follows:
clrip –c <config> <inputfile>
In the above command line,
<config> is the name of a configuration file, such as
Monochrome72dpi. The file contains configuration details that set items such as output colorants, resolution, and so on. These files are read from the
A configuration should always be specified along with an input file. For the examples on this page, output is placed in the same folder as the input file. If no config is specified clrip will default to using
The job file must always be the last item in the command line. Multiple jobs and wildcards are supported.
Black and white (monochrome) output
The following configuration produces a black and white, halftoned 72 dpi .tif output file:
clrip –c Monochrome72dpi ../Samples/IceCreamLabel.pdf
Color (CMYK) output
The following configuration produces a contone CMYK 300 dpi .tif output file:
clrip –c CMYKComposite300dpi ../Samples/IceCreamLabel.pdf
clrip.exe parameters control the basic operation:
|A configuration file in the |
|-||Format of the output file, TIFF, JPEG, RAW, NONE, and so on.|
and can be used together. For example, a CMYK 300 dpi with JPEG output follows:
clrip.exe –c CMYKComposite300dpi –o JPEG ../Samples/IceCreamLabel.pdf
The configuration is a PostScript file.
Further examples used in this guide are available in
SW/TestConfig; they are documented in Hqn100 - Guide to Harlequin Core Resources 13.0r1.
To list all available command-line options for clrip, type
