The section of the CIP4 manual is below. My interpretation is that "Xyz" is the normal printing sequence and "XyZ" therefore is therefore a reverse printing sequence of a logical stack. The confusion comes from perspective and the statement "Specifies flowing top of stack to bottom of it through the stack". If you view the statement as a physical stack from a printers perspective, then to achieve "z", the stack requires reversing to achieve the desired order, however, if you view it from the perspective of a logical stack being processed, "z" would not require processing to achieve the order. Ive come across difference implementations in devices and would appreciate clarification. Thx
According to both the wording and the examples, capital Z would result in lower page numbers on the bottom of the stack and lower-case z would result in lower page numbers on the top of the stack.
Thus if x=y=1 Z is the same as SameOrderFaceDown and z is the same as ReverseOrderFaceUp
I hope this helps.
I (had) interpreted the stack as the logical stack and not physical stack, hence why I see the document as ambiguous. However I am ok with your answer as the interpretation since you clarified it officially
Your answer leaves a small piece of confusion...did you mean:-
"Z is face down and z is face up." or did you mean
"Z is same order and z is reverse order", or did you mean
"Z is the same as SameOrderFaceDown and z is the same as ReverseOrderFaceUp" ?
