NPRINT(1)				      nprint					NPRINT(1)

NAME
       nprint - NetWare print client

SYNOPSIS
       nprint [ -S server ] [ -h ] [ -U username | -n ] [ -C ] [ -q queuename ] [ -d job-descrip-
       tion ] [ -p pathname-in-banner ] [ -B username-in-banner ] [ -s ] [ -f  filename-in-banner
       ]  [ -l lines ] [ -r rows ] [ -c copies ] [ -t tab size ] [ -T ] [ -N ] [ -F form-number ]
       filename

DESCRIPTION
       With nprint, you can print files on print queues of a NetWare file server.

       There are a lot of options, so you should probably wrap some default  configurations  into
       some shell scripts.

       nprint looks up the file $HOME/.nwclient to find a file server, a user name and possibly a
       password. See nwclient(5) for more information.	Please note that the  access  permissions
       of .nwclient MUST be 600, for security reasons.

OPTIONS
       filename
	  filename  is	the name of the file you want to print. If file is '-', or no filename is
	  given, standard input is used.

       -h
	  -h is used to print out a short help text.

       -S server
	  server is the name of the server you want to use.

       -U username
	  username is the user name to use for the print request at the server.

       -P password
	  password is the password to use for the print request at the server.	If neither -n nor
	  -P  are  given, and the user has no open connection to the server, nprint prompts for a
	  password.

       -n
	  -n should be given if no password is required for the print request.

       -C
	  By default, passwords are converted to uppercase before they are sent  to  the  server,
	  because most servers require this. You can turn off this conversion by -C.

       -q queuename
	  queuename  is  the  name of the print queue to use at the print server. At present, you
	  must specify it in upper case characters.

       -d job-description
	  job-description is the string that appears in pconsole when you list the jobs  for  the
	  print queue. It will also appear in the "Description" field on the banner page.

       -p pathname-in-banner
	  pathname-in-banner  is  the  string (up to 79 characters) you want to be printed in the
	  "Directory" field on the banner page.

       -B username-in-banner
	  username-in-banner is the string (up to 12 characters) you want to appear on the  lower
	  part of the banner page. It will also appear in the "User name" field.

       -s
	  Supress printing of banner page

       -f filename-in-banner
	  filename-in-banner is the string (up to 12 characters) you want to appear in large let-
	  ters on the lower part of the banner page. Default:  the  name  of  the  file  that  is
	  printed, or 'stdin'.

       -l lines
	  lines is the number of lines to put on one page. Default: 66.

       -r rows
	  rows is the number of rows to put on one page. Default: 80.

       -c copies
	  copies tells the print server to the specified number of copies.  Default: 1.

       -t tabs
	  tabs is the number of spaces to print for a Tab-Character.  Default: 8.

       -T
	  tells the print server to expand Tab-Character and use 8 spaces

       -N
	  tells the print server not to use Form Feeds

       -F form-number
	  form-number is the the number of the form to be put into the printer. If it's different
	  from the one currently in the printer, your job is only printed if a	printer  operator
	  has put in the correct form.

NOTES
       The '-B' option was formerly '-b'. But it conflicted with 'bindery only' login option.
