DIRECTOMATIC(1) 		     General Commands Manual			  DIRECTOMATIC(1)

NAME
       directomatic - Print without spooler

SYNOPSIS
       directomatic -P <printdef> [-J jobtitle] [-o option=value [...]] [file]

DESCRIPTION
       Directomatic  is  a  filter script to print with free software printer drivers without the
       need of a print spooler.  It is designed to be used together with a Foomatic printer defi-
       nition file.

   Options
       -P <printdef>
		 where printdef is the printer definition file to use.

       -J <jobtitle>
		 where	job  title will be printed in the head line of every page of a plain text
		 job.

       -o option=value
		 Set an arbitrary option.

       file	 The file to print.

   Commands
       Directomatic will print from standard input unless a file to print  is  specified  on  the
       command	 line.	  If   your   printer  definition  file  is  in  /etc/foomatic/direct  or
       ~/.foomatic/direct you do not need to specify its path.	Put a (instructions in the  file)
       to redirect the output of directomatic to your printer instead of standard output. To make
       normal users able to print this way add them to group lp and  make  sure  the  appropriate
       printer device file /dev/lpX is group-writable.

       See http://www.linuxprinting.org/direct-doc.html

FILES
       /etc/foomatic/direct/<queue>
				The foomatic printer definition file.

EXIT STATUS
       directomatic returns 0 unless something unexpected happens.
