DESCRIPTION

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.

OPTIONS

Whitespace is permitted between a command-line option and its argument.
−c
num-copies

Print num-copies copies of each page.

−l
