 ***************************************************************************

  This intelligent backend is needed to utilize many common dye-sublimation
  photo printers under Linux, OSX, and other UNIX-like operating systems.

  Although these printers advertise themselves as standard USB Printer Class
  devices, they do not actually obey those specifications and require 
  special two-way handshaking in order to successfully print.

  This backend can only be used in conjunction with Gutenprint 5.2.10 or
  newer.  Please see the Gutenprint README file (section II D) for more
  information on  use of this backend and integration into CUPS.
  
  Although this backend is bundled with Gutenprint, this repository is 
  considered the canonical upstream source where all development occurs.
  As such, when compared to the current Gutenprint release, the code found 
  here is often newer, with additional features or device support.  At the
  same time, it may have half-developed features that don't quite work, 
  with giant bugs that come out at midnight to eat your cat.

  On that note, please keep in mind that this software distributed
  in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY WHATSOEVER.

 ***************************************************************************

  This backend also supports a "standalone" mode that performs various 
  utility functions for selected printers, such as querying status and
  configuring various parameters. The exact commands supported for each
  printer are documented below.

 ***************************************************************************
  Compilation:

     This tool requires libusb 1.0 to build.  We highly recommend 
     v1.0.16 or newer due to general stability improvements. Versions
     older than 1.0.10 will require -DLIBUSB_PRE_1_0_10 to be defined 
     (see the Makefile).

     To further complicate things, libusb-1.0 had a temporary fork called
     libusbx, but that was merged back into libusb as of v1.0.18.  
     Consequently, your distribution package for libusb-1.0 may be 
     called libusbx instead.

     Fedora/RedHat:
	yum install libusbx-devel libusb1-devel
     Debian/Ubuntu
	apt-get install libusbx-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev

   And all you need to do after that is type 'make'

 ***************************************************************************
  CUPS backend usage:

   DEVICE_URI=someuri \
       gutenprint52+usb job-id user title num-copies options [ filename ]

    The backend generates output for CUPS to parse, including logging
    print counts, and if the printer supports it, reporting media type and
    remaining media counts.

 ***************************************************************************
  Standalone usage:

    This backend is set up as a multi-call executable; that is to say
    behaivor changes based on the name used to invoke the executable.
    When compiled, a set of symlinks are created, corresponding to each
    of the internal backends.  Alternatively you may set the BACKEND
    environment variable to force a specific backend to be used.  These
    commands are equivalent:

         BACKEND=backend gutenprint52+usb [ arguments ]
	 backend [ arguments ]

     All backends support the following invocations:

        backend [ arguments ]
	backend [ arguments ] filename
	backend [ arguments ] - < filename
	somecommand | backend [ arguments ] -

      The 'filename' here refers to the raw spool data generated by
      Gutenprint (eg via its gimp plugin) or the Windows print-to-file 
      output.

      All global arguments:

	   -D                 Increment debug level                      [1]
	   -G                 Display GPL text
	   -f                 Enable fast return mode if possible        [2]
	   -d numcopies       Print 'numcopies' of the supplied job

       [1]  This argument can be repeated to increase the debug level.
            Alternatively, the 'DYESUB_DEBUG' environment variable can be
	    used.  For example, '-DDD' and 'DYESUB_DEBUG=3' are equivalent.

		DYESUB_DEBUG=1		Enable debug output
		DYESUB_DEBUG=2		Dump contents of short messges
		DYESUB_DEBUG=3		Dump contents of all messages

       [2]  This terminates the backend as soon as the printer has
            acknowledged the print job, without waiting for the print job
	    to complete.  This can also be enabled by setting the
	    'FAST_RETURN' environment variable.  This is the default behavior
	    when using this backend with CUPS.  Not all backends support
	    fast return.

      If you have multiple models of the same printer family connected
      simultaneously, the backend will choose the first one it finds.
      If you wish to target a specific device, you may specify its
      serial number using the 'SERIAL' environment variable. For example:

            SERIAL=N782 backend filename [ arguments ]

       All backends support an additional operational mode, to test out
       unknown models. To use this mode, specify the VID, PID and its
       internal device type as environment variables:

            EXTRA_VID=04a9 EXTRA_PID=3ab1 EXTRA_TYPE=7 backend filename

       The VID and PID are specified in hexidecimal, and the TYPE is 
       the P_XXX enumeration defined in backend_common.h. The '7' in this
       example corresponds to most Canon SELPHY CP models, and is what you
       would use if you were trying to get the backend to detect an
       otherwise unrecognized SELPHY CP model.

       If you are able to successfuly print using this technique,
       please let us know so we can add the apppriate entry to the
       internal database.

    Finally, some backends support additional arguments; see below:

 ***************************************************************************

   Verified supported printers:
  
     ES1, ES2, ES3, ES30, ES40, CP-10, CP-100, CP-200, CP-300, CP-330,

   *** VERY IMPORTANT ***

     In order to generate usable output, the Sinfonia CHC-S6145 printer
     (and its siblings) require the input data to be transformed using
     specific image processing algorithms.

     The library that implements this processing is dynamically loaded
     at runtime. There are three options:

       * libS6145ImageProcess -- Supported by Sinfonia, this is a proprietary
         library only available for x86 and x86_64 linux targets. It can be
	 obtained by politely contacting your local Sinfonia distributor.

         If you have the appropriate permission fron Sinfonia and its
	 technical and legal limitations are acceptible to you, we recommend
         you use the supported libS6145ImageProcess library, as it will
	 generate the highest quality output.

       * libS6145ImageReProcess -- GPL'd re-implementation of the Sinfonia
         algorithms, available as source.  It is a drop-in replacement
	 that appears to generate identical output to the proprietary
	 Sinfonia library.

	 DISCLAIMER: Sinfonia Inc was not involved in the creation of
	 libS6145ImageReProcess and is not responsible in any way for any
	 deficiencies in its output. They will provide no support if it is
	 used.

         Do *NOT* contact Sinfonia for support if you are using
	 libS6146ImageReProcess.

	    (Please see the full disclaimer in libS6145ImageReProcess.c)

       * If neither of the above libraries are found, the backend will
         fall back to a very crude algorithm that generates low-quality
	 results not suitable for photographic output

     As selphy_print is released under the terms of the GPL, it cannot
     normally be combined with proprietary libraries.

     Therefore, the authors of selphy_print grant its users an additional
     permission (under section 7 of the GPLv3) to combine and/or redistribute
     it with the libS6145ImageProcess library.  For the full text of this
     license exception, please see the header of backend_shinkos6145.c

  Notes:

    [1]  Format of curvedata file:

	 256 entries each of Yellow, Magenta, Cyan mappings:
	 Values are unsigned 16-bit big endian, between 0 and 2047 
	 (ie only 11 bits used)

    [2]  Job ID is the Internal Job ID (reported via status)
	   This cancels a multi-copy print job.
	   To see which jobs are active/pending, see the output of the
	   '-s' command, specifically the 'Bank' output.

    [3]  Default printer tone curve is a linear 'val << 3'

   *** VERY IMPORTANT ***

        In order to generate usable output, this family of printers require
	the input data to be transformed using specific image processing
	algorithms.

	The library that implements this processing is dynamically loaded
	at runtime.  There is currently only one option:

	 * libMitsuD70ImageReProcess -- GPL'd re-implementation of the
	   Mitsubishi algorithms, available as source.  No guaranteees are
	   made about its output quality as compared to Mitsubishi's
	   proprietary drivers, but it is generally considered quite good.

	   DISCLAIMER:  Mitsubishi was not involved in the creation of
	   libMitsuD70ImageReProcess and is not responsible in any way for
	   any deficiencies in its output.  They will provide no support if
	   it is used.

	   Do *NOT* contact Mitsubishi for support if you are using
	   any combination of gutenprint, selphy_print or
	   libMitsuD80ImageReProcess.

             (Please see the full disclaimer in libMitsuD70ImageReProcess.c)

	 * If the above library is not found, the backend will fall back to
	   a very crude algorithm that generates low-quality results not
	   suitable for photographic output.

   Valid commands:

     -k num		Specify standby delay (1-60 minutes, 0 disables)

  Notes:

      **** VERY IMPORTANT ****

    The CP-98xx family is similar to the CP-D70 family in that it requires
    the input data to be gamma corrected (and likely transformed in other
    ways) before it is sent to the printer.  Currently, Gutenprint performs
    a relatively crude linear conversion that results in poor quality output.

    Unlike the D70 family, the data tables used are embedded into the driver
    instead of being bundled separately, further complicating the process
    of figuring out how this all works.
