grolj4 is a driver for groff that produces output in PCL5 format suitable for an HP Laserjet 4 printer.

There is an additional drawing command available:

\D'R  dh dv '
Draw a rule (solid black rectangle), with one corner at the current position, and the diagonally opposite corner at the current position +( dh, dv). Afterwards the current position will be at the opposite corner. This generates a PCL fill rectangle command, and so will work on printers that do not support HPGL/2 unlike the other \D commands.


-c n

Print the document with a landscape orientation.
-d [ n ]
Use duplex mode n: 1 is long-side binding; 2 is short-side binding; default is 1.

-w n
Set the default line thickness to n thousandths of an em. If this option isn't specified, the line thickness defaults to 0.04 em.
