NAME
       pap, papstatus - client interface to remote printers using Printer Access Protocol

SYNOPSIS
       pap [ -c ] [ -e ] [ -p nbpname ] [ -s statusfile ] [ files ]

       papstatus [ -p nbpname ]

DESCRIPTION
       pap  is	used  to connect and send files to an AppleTalk connected printer using the Apple
       Printer Access Protocol (PAP).  When pap starts execution, it tries to open a session with
       the printer using PAP, and then downloads the files to the printer.

       If no files are given on the command line, pap begins reading from standard input.

       If  no printer is specified on the command line, pap looks for a file called .paprc in the
       current working directory and reads it to obtain the nbpname of a  printer.   Blank  lines
       and lines that begin with a `#' are ignored.  type and zone default to LaserWriter and the
       zone of the local host, respectively.

       Note that pap is designed to be useful  as  a  communication  filter  for  sending  lpd(8)
       spooled print jobs to AppleTalk connected printers.  See psf(8) for hints on how to use it
       this way.

OPTIONS
       -c     Take cuts.  Normally pap tells the printer how long it has been waiting.	 When  -c
	      is specified, pap claims to have been waiting forever.

       -e     Send  any message from the printer to stderr instead of stdout.  psf(8) invokes pap
	      with this option.

       -p nbpname
	      Connect to the printer named nbpname and do not consult the .paprc file to  find	a
	      printer name.  See nbp_name(3) for the syntax of nbpname.

       -s statusfile
	      Update  the  file  called statusfile to contain the most recent status message from
	      the printer.  pap gets the status from the printer  when	it  is	waiting  for  the
	      printer  to  process  input.   The statusfile will contain a single line terminated
	      with a newline.  This is useful when pap is invoked by psf(8)  within  lpd's  spool
	      directory.

FILES
       .paprc		   file that contains printer name
