foomatic-printjob - manage printer jobs in a spooler-independent fashion SYNOPSIS
foomatic-printjob [ -s spooler ] [ -P queuename ] [ -o option1=value1 -o option2 ... ] [ -i ] [ file1 file2 ... ] foomatic-printjob -Q [ -s spooler ] [ -P queuename ] [ -i ] [ -a ] [ user1 user2 ... ] foomatic-printjob -R [ -s spooler ] [ -P queuename ] [ -i ] [ - | jobid1 jobid2 ... ] foomatic-printjob -C [ -s spooler ] [ -i ] command [ arguments ] foomatic-printjob -S [ -s spooler ] [ -i ] foomatic-printjob -h [ -s spooler ] [ -P queuename ] [ -i ] DESCRIPTION
foomatic-printjob provides a spooler-independent interface to creating and managing printer jobs and print queues. Note that the first argument changes the mode of the command, as it combines the functionality of several System V-style printing commands. OPTIONS -sspooler Explicit spooler type. -Pqueuename Any commands specified should apply to this queue instead of the default. -ooption=value Set option to value -ooption Set the switch option -#n Print n copies file1 file2 ... Files to be printed, when no file is given, standard input will be printed -Q Query the jobs in a queue. If a list of users is specified, only those users' jobs will be queried. -Q -a Query the jobs in all queues. If a list of users is specified, only those users' jobs will be queried. -R [ - | jobid1 jobid2 ... ] Remove a job from a queue. Using - will remove all jobs. -C command [ arguments ] Execute control commands for queue/job manipulation. The commands are the ones of the BSD "lpc" utility. Use the control command "help" to get a list of supported commands. Note: the amount of commands varies with the spooler, but the same commands given under different spoolers do the same thing. -i Interactive mode: You will be asked if foomatic-printjob is in doubt about something. Otherwise foomatic-printjob uses auto- detection or quits with an error. -S Save the chosen spooler as the default spooler -h Show this message or show a list of available options if a queue is specified SEE ALSO

foomatic-ppdfile - Generate a PPD file for a given printer/driver combo SYNOPSIS
foomatic-ppdfile [-w] [-d <driver>] -p <printerid> foomatic-ppdfile [-A] [-P pattern] foomatic-ppdfile -h DESCRIPTION
The first form of the foomatic-ppdfile to compute the spooler-independent Foomatic PPD file for any valid printer/driver combo available in the Foomatic database, both for printing with foomatic-rip(1) and for applications/clients being able to access the printer's options. The PPD file is returned on standard ouput. If the driver is not specified, the default driver is used. The second form of the foomatic-ppdfile program will search the printer database and return either all printer entries or those whose name and/or model information match a regular expression. The last form prints a help message and exits. Options -d drivername The (optional) driver name to use. If the driver name is not supplied, the default or first driver in the printers compatible driver list is used. -p printer id The printer id. -w Return a PPD file that conforms to the Microsoft Windows format limitations. -A Return all printer entries in the database. -Ppattern Return all printer entries in the database which match the regular expression. SEE ALSO foomatic-rip(1) EXIT STATUS
foomatic-ppdfile returns 0 on success, 1 otherwise. AUTHOR
