NAME
plpprintd - Daemon for printing via PC from a Psion. SYNOPSIS
plpprintd [-d] [-h] [-v] [-V] [-s spooldir] [-c print-cmd] [-p [host:]port] [long-options] DESCRIPTION
plpprintd provides a print server for a Psion, connected to the PC. Using plpprintd, you can use the Psion's "Print via PC" feature to access any printer, available on your PC. When receiving a print job, the data is converted to Postscript(R) and then send to a printer. OPTIONS
-d, --debug Enable additional debug messages and stay in foreground (do not fork). -h, --help Display a short help text and exit. -v, --verbose Increase verbosity -V, --version Display the version and exit -s, --spooldir=dir Specify a directory to use for temporary spool files. If this option is missing, a builtin default /var/spool/plpprint is used. -c, --printcmd=cmd Specify a command for actually sending a print job to the printer. The specified command must receive the data from its standard input. If this option is missing, a builtin default lpr -Ppsion is used. -p, --port=[host:]port Specify the host and port to connect to (e.g. The port where ncpd is listening on) - by default the host is 127.0.0.1 and the port is looked up in /etc/services. If it is not found there, a builtin value of 7501 is used. FILES @PKGDATA@/prolog.ps contains the Postscript((R)) dictionary, needed for printing the jobs. @PKGDATA@/fontmap specifies the font mapping to be used. This file is used to convert the Psion's font names into valid Postscript((R)) font names. Its format is described at the beginning of it. If a Psion font name is received which can not be found in this file, a builtin default Courier is used. BUGS
Using patterns in diagrams gives ugly results. SEE ALSO

NAME
lpr - print files SYNOPSIS
lpr [ -E ] [ -H server[:port] ] [ -U username ] [ -P destination[/instance] ] [ -# num-copies [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -m ] [ -o option[=value] ] [ -p] [ -q ] [ -r ] [ -C/J/T title ] [ file(s) ] DESCRIPTION
lpr submits files for printing. Files named on the command line are sent to the named printer (or the default destination if no destination is specified). If no files are listed on the command-line, lpr reads the print file from the standard input. THE DEFAULT DESTINATION
CUPS provides many ways to set the default destination. The "LPDEST" and "PRINTER" environment variables are consulted first. If neither are set, the current default set using the lpoptions(1) command is used, followed by the default set using the lpadmin(8) command. OPTIONS
The following options are recognized by lpr: -E Forces encryption when connecting to the server. -H server[:port] Specifies an alternate server. -C "name" -J "name" -T "name" Sets the job name. -P destination[/instance] Prints files to the named printer. -U username Specifies an alternate username. -# copies Sets the number of copies to print from 1 to 100. -h Disables banner printing. This option is equivalent to "-o job-sheets=none". -l Specifies that the print file is already formatted for the destination and should be sent without filtering. This option is equivalent to "-o raw". -m Send an email on job completion. -o option[=value] Sets a job option. -p Specifies that the print file should be formatted with a shaded header with the date, time, job name, and page number. This option is equivalent to "-o prettyprint" and is only useful when printing text files. -q Hold job for printing. -r Specifies that the named print files should be deleted after printing them. COMPATIBILITY
The "c", "d", "f", "g", "i", "n", "t", "v", and "w" options are not supported by CUPS and produce a warning message if used. SEE ALSO
