Specify an exact resolution for the printer.


   resolution STRING )
  1. resolution - the resolution of the printer. You can set a resolution for both the X-axis and the Y-axis, or you can set the resolution for the X-axis and the Y-axis separately. You can specify DPI (dots per inch) or DPCM (dots per centimeter). DPI is the default.
    Table 1. Valid resolution entries
    Value Description (X-axis, Y-axis, Measure)
    300 300,300,dpi
    300 dpcm 300,300,dpcm
    300,150 300,150,dpi
    300,150,dpi 300,150,dpi
    300,150,dpcm 300,150,dpcm


Function to specify an exact resolution supported by a printer or to be used for the job. This function assumes that printers have a small set of device resolutions at which they can operate, rather than a continuum.

By default, a resolution is not specified.

Setting this option reduces the number of usable printers to those matching the specified value.
