       papstatus - get the status of an AppleTalk-connected printer

       /usr/sbin/papstatus [ -d ] [ -p printer ] [ retrytime ]

       papstatus  is  used  to	obtain	the  current  status  message from an AppleTalk connected
       printer.  It uses the Printer Access Protocol (PAP) to obtain the status information.

       If no printer is specified on the command line, papstatus looks for a file  called  .paprc
       in  the	current  directory and reads it to obtain the name of a printer.  The .paprc file
       should contain a single line of the form object:type@zone where each of object, :type, and
       @zone  are  optional.  type and zone must be proceeded by `:' and `@' respectively.  Blank
       lines and lines the begin with a `#' are ignored.  type and zone  default  to  LaserWriter
       and the zone of the local host, respectively.

       -d     Turns on a debugging mode that prints some extra information to standard error.

       -p printer
	      Get  status  from printer (do not consult any .paprc files to find a printer name).
	      The syntax for printer is the same as discussed above for the .paprc file.

	      Normally, papstatus only gets the status from the printer once.	If  retrytime  is
	      specified,  the  status  is  obtained repeatedly, with a sleep of retrytime seconds
	      between inquiring the printer.

       .paprc		   file that contains printer name
