LPDOMATIC(8)			     System Manager's Manual			     LPDOMATIC(8)

NAME
       lpdomatic - Foomatic filter script for LPD, LPRng, and GNUlpr

SYNOPSIS
       lpdomatic [OPTION]... <PPD-filename>

DESCRIPTION
       The  lpdomatic print filter serves as an input filter for the lp family of print spoolers.
       The print spooler will use it if there is an entry if=/usr/sbin/lpdomatic in the appropri-
       ate  printer  section in /etc/printcap. You can generate such an entry using foomatic-con-
       figure.

       A listing of the attached printer drivers options is printed,  when  the  option  docs  is
       passed to this filter.  This can be achieved by issuing one of the following commands:

       for LPRng use
	      echo | lpr -Z docs

       for other spoolers
	      echo | lpr -J docs

   Options
       -j option (all  but  LPRng)  Pass option to the printer driver.	May also be read from the
		 environment.

       -J jobtitle
		 (LPRng only) Set the job title to jobtitle.  This may be used	to  set  a  title
		 header when printing plain text.

       -Z option (LPRng only) Pass option to the printer driver.
