8.3 Statusdict Options

The statusdict is a special storage entity in PostScript (called a dictionary), in which some variables and operators determine the behavior of the printer. This is an historic horror that existed before page device definitions were defined. They are even more printer dependent, and are provided only for the people who don't have a level printer. In any case, refer to the documentation of your printer for supported options.

Here are some statusdict definitions in which you might be interested:

manualfeed boolean
Variable which determine that the manual fed paper tray will be used. Use is `--statusdict=manualfeed::true'.

setmanualfeed boolean
Idem as the previous point, but use is `--statusdict=setmanualfeed:true'.

setduplexmode boolean
If boolean, then print Duplex. Use if `--statusdict=setduplexmode:true'.
