Hierarchy of transform options

InfoPrint assigns a hierarchy to its use of flags and configuration-file information when it runs the PCL, PostScript, or PDF transform program. The following lists the order in which InfoPrint uses flags and information specified in configuration files:

  1. Any values you specify on the command line, including values in the configuration file you specify with the -C flag.

    InfoPrint commands process flags from left to right. If you enter the same flag more than once, InfoPrint uses the last occurrence of the flag to determine the value to use. For example, if you specify this command:

    ps2afp -Cconfig.file -r240 -r300 myfile.ps
    The ps2afp command transforms the file using 300-pel resolution. InfoPrint ignores the resolution value specified in the configuration file config.file and the first -r240 flag and value.

  2. Values specified in the pcl2afp.cfg or ps2afp.cfg configuration file in the current directory, if one exists and if you enter the transform command
