foo2oak is a printer driver for printers that use the Oak Technology
(now Zoran) OAKT protocol for their print data, such as the HP Color
LaserJet 1500, Kyocera KM-1635 and the Kyocera KM-2035. These printers
are often erroneously referred to as winprinters or GDI
printers. However, Microsoft GDI only mandates the API between an
application and the printer driver, not the protocol on the wire
between the printer driver and the printer. In fact, OAKT printers are
raster printers which happen to use a fairly efficient wire protocol
which was developed by Oak Technology and licensed by some printer
manufacturers for at least some of their product lines. OAKT is just
one of many wire protocols that are in use today, such as Postscript,
PCL, Epson, ZjStream, etc.
