Flags and values

-formdef=formdefname
Specifies the name of the form definition to be used to transform an SAP Output Text Format (OTF) file into an AFP data stream file.
-pagedef=pagedefname
Specifies the name of the page definition to be used to transform an Advanced Business Application Programming (ABAP) file into an AFP data stream file.
-chars=char1_name,char2_name
Specifies the name of the fonts to be used by ACIF in order to transform an Advanced Business Application Programming (ABAP) file into an AFP data stream file in a non-Unicode environment.
-environment {normal | japanese | spchinese | tdchinese | korean | cyrillic | unicode}
Specifies one of the legal values for the possible environments. You can only use this flag when you are transforming an ASCII-encoded ABAP file.
-t
Traces program execution.
-g
Invokes the Graphics Object Content Architecture (GOCA) feature of the printer device. The GOCA feature lets you print boxes with four different levels of shading, as well as clear and solid boxes.
-r { 240 | 300 | 360 | 480 | 600 | 720 | 1200}
Specifies the printer resolution as dots-per-inch (DPI) used to print image data in the job. If you do not specify the -r flag, the DEFRES value in the image.tab file is used. In the image.tab file shipped with Transform Manager, the DEFRES value is 600.
-fdeflib=pathname
Specifies the pathname for the form definition resources. You can only use this flag when you are transforming an ABAP file.
-fontlib=pathname
Specifies the pathname for the font resources. You can only use this flag when you are transforming an ABAP file.
-ovlylib=pathname
Specifies the pathname for the overlay resources. You can only use this flag when you are transforming an ABAP file.
-pdeflib=pathname
Specifies the pathname for the page definition resources. You can only use this flag when you are transforming an ABAP file.
-pseglib=pathname
Specifies the pathname for the page segment resources. You can only use this flag when you are transforming an ABAP file.
-reslib=pathname
Specifies the pathname for the system resources. You can only use this flag when you are transforming an ABAP file.
-userlib=pathname
Specifies the pathname for the user resources. You can only use this flag when you are transforming an ABAP file.
-abapcp filename
Specifies the filename to use instead of the information in the default defcp tab file selected. You can only use this flag when you are transforming an ABAP file.
-pagedeftab filename
Specifies the filename to use instead of the information in the the default pagedef tab file selected.
-imagetab filename
Specifies the filename to use instead of the information in image.tab.
-centerlines
Specifies the use of the SAP specification for centering BX boxes.
-gocatext
Specifies the use of GOCA fonts from the 6400fonts.tab for ST text data.
-sap_bc_origin
Specifies the SAP bar code orientation point as the lower left corner.
-useascii
Specifies that data should be interpreted as ASCII in SAPGOF OTF files with ST commands that use CP4102 or CP4103 .
-sapgof_st_chars
Specifies that the OTF input file was generated using the SAPGOF_ST_CHARS: X entry from the SAP Unicode System. Using this flag, the sap2afp transform detects that for Unicode codepages, the ST and BC commands counters are halved and it doubles them, internally, so that the SAP file is correctly processed. This parameter is ignored for ABAP files.
-truetype
Specifies the use of TrueType fonts. In the Unicode environment, it uses the configuration files fonts.tab.unicode.truetype and pagedef.tab.unicode.truetype, which map the TrueType fonts. For SAP OTF input files with TrueType inline fonts, the transform will output AFP data containing the referenced TrueType fonts as inline resources.
-is3
Specifies that the transform produce IS/3 compliant datastreams.

Note
When you use the -is3 flag, the sap2afp transform uses TrueType fonts instead of FOCA fonts. The default TrueType fonts that the sap2afp transform uses are the WorldType Fonts, Version 8.13. You can specify your choice of TrueType fonts in the sap2afp configuration files: fonts.tab.unicode.truetype and pagedef.tab.unicode.truetype. See The sap2afp configuration files for more information.

-a {FS10|FS45}
Specifies the type of AFP image output that the transform generates from SAP OTF color image input:
  • FS10 generates bi-level output.
  • FS45 generates color IOCA FS45 ouptut and is only supported for SAP OTF data streams.
The default value is FS10.
-S ServerName
Specifies the name of the server to be used for processing.
-P PortNumber
Specifies the port number that the server monitors (set by the -S flag).
