Hello Peter,

tiff2ps <InputFilePath> | gs -dNOPAUSE -sOutputFile=<OutputFilePath>
-sDEVICE=ljet4 -sPAPERSIZE=<MyPaperSize>  - -c quit

I have tested it with tiff2ps from tiff-v3.4beta035/tools and
Ghostsrcipt  4.00 .
It is not fast, but it works.
The output format is PCL DELTA or (with -sDEVICE=laserjet PCL RAW).
If it not run, look to the - between paper size and -c quit ( it is
the flag for stdin or pipe).

I have written a converter from TIFF g3, g4, modg3 and raw which can
create PCL DELTA and RAW. It is a little bit faster
(real 0m20.70s versus real 0m1.54s  on a HP 9000/720 ).
It works on WINDOWS 95 and NT and some UNIX systems. But it is
