Modifying the FGID and CPGID GRID files
CZnnnn entries to raster font character-set names. If you do not create this mapping, InfoPrint issues an error message and does not print the job.
For example, if you wanted to map the Times New Roman Latin 1 character set to the raster version, you would do these steps:
- From theAIX command line, change to the /var/psf/PrinterName directory, where PrinterName is the name of the InfoPrint physical printer representing the printer device.
- Create the fgid.grd file from the fgid.grd.sample file. Enter the command:
cp /usr/lpp/psf/grd/fgid.grd.sample fgid.grd
- Using an AIX
editor, edit the file that you just created and copy this line:
2308 2039 * * CZN200 # Times New Roman Latin1
- Change the entry in the FCS name column to
2308 2039 * * CON20000 # Raster version of TNR Latin 1
- Save your changes and close the file.
After this substitution, InfoPrint prints jobs that specify the font character-set name
CZN200 and that processed on the physical printer for which you made the change using the
raster version of the font. The
CZN200 character set now maps to:
- An FGID of
- A GCSGID of
- A vertical size of
- A width of
Because the InfoPrint 3835 Advanced Function Printer does not support any resident
outline fonts, the fgid.grd.sample file maps the FGID and the GCSGID back to the
C0N20000 character set. Then, InfoPrint searches the resource library search path to locate the
C0N20000 character for downloading with the job.
To modify the cpgid file so that the personal computer ASCII code page for Iceland maps to the multilingual code page for ASCII data as described in Modifying the charset and codepage GRID files, do these steps:
