 GS 4.03 and 720x720 on Stylus Color 600

The command to get Ghostscript 4.03 to print on the Epson Stylus Color 600
in 720x720 resolution mode (at least, using Linux) is as follows:

  gs  -q -dSAFER -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=stcolor -r720x720 \
    -sDithering=fscmyk -dMicroweave -sOutputFile=- stcolor.ps -

Note that this is in the form of a filter, so if you typed this stand-alone
(eg, not part of a filter process in your "lp" command, for instance
/var/spool/lpd/lp/filter) you'd need to redirect input and output, as in:

  gs -q -dSAFER -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=stcolor -r720x720 -sDithering=fscmyk \
    -dMicroweave -sOutputFile=- stcolor.ps - < inputfile.ps > escp2.dat

and then to print it manually on a printer, you'd do (as root):

  cat escp2.dat > /dev/lp1

Note that GS 4.03 does not come with a makefile set up to include "stcolor"
by default, you have to edit the makefile yourself to include it.  Note
also the "stcolor.ps" is not the file you want to print, it's a parameter
file that needs to be in your GS resource directory, eg., on my machine
it's in the directory:

  /usr/local/share/ghostscript/4.03/

Good luck.
