foo2hiperc is a printer driver for printers that use the HIPERC wire protocol for their print data, such as the Oki C3400n and the Oki C5500n. It uses Ghostscript to perform all of the heavy lifting (image processing). There are five major components: foo2hiperc (the page image to protocol conversion engine of the driver); foo2hiperc-wrapper (runs ghostscript and foo2hiperc in a pipeline); icc2ps (converts an ICM color profile to a Postscript CRD, which is then fed into Ghostscript before the user's Postscript program); foomatic-db (foomatic database entries that describe the supported printers and their options so that printer spoolers know how to access the printer using foo2hiperc-wrapper); and hipercdecode (a tool for developers to inspect HIPERC streams).
