comment How to share a GNU sed script between Linux and Mac OS X
Would \:;`command -v gsed || command -v sed` -f "$0" "$@";$:s/^// be a portable alternative?

comment How to share a GNU sed script between Linux and Mac OS X
Ah, would \:;s=sed;command -v gsed >/dev/null && s=gsed; exec "$s" -f "$0" "$@";$:s/^// then be more portable?

@Hennes: well, the problem is that on OS X, the sed I want would be called gsed, but your suggestion would work if the script does not contain any GNUisms.

Could you elaborate on ‘a generic raster-to-PCL filter’ or give a pointer to a source doing so?

OKI MB441, I'd like to buy it especially for the duplex 50 page ADF (unattended two-sided scanning to digitize my personal archive and clear out part of my basement) and duplex output, and relatively low price (home use); I am aware I should not hope for SANE support. HP or other vendors don't seem to offer anything resembling it at that price point (especially if you want the duplex ADF). Given that it can be used as a network printer and print from USB-stick, I assume no firmware upload is necessary.

But the generic PCL6 driver should still work, no?
