       smbspool - send print file to an SMB printer

       smbspool [ job ]  [ user ]  [ title ]  [ copies ]  [ options ]  [ filename ]

       This tool is part of the  Samba suite.

       smbspool is a very small print spooling program that sends a print file to an SMB printer.
       The command-line arguments are position-dependent for compatibility with the  Common  UNIX
       Printing  System,  but  you can use smbspool with any printing system or from a program or


       smbspool specifies the destination using a Uniform  Resource  Identifier  ("URI")  with	a
       method of "smb". This string can take a number of forms:

       o smb://server/printer

       o smb://workgroup/server/printer

       o smb://username:password@server/printer

       o smb://username:password@workgroup/server/printer

       smbspool  tries	to  get the URI from argv[0]. If argv[0] contains the name of the program
       then it looks in the  DEVICE_URI environment variable.

       Programs using the exec(2) functions can pass the URI in argv[0], while shell scripts must
       set the DEVICE_URI environment variable prior to running smbspool.

       o The  job argument (argv[1]) contains the job ID number and is presently not used by smb-

       o The user argument (argv[2]) contains the print user's name and is presently not used  by

       o The  title  argument (argv[3]) contains the job title string and is passed as the remote
	 file name when sending the print job.

       o The copies argument (argv[4]) contains the number of copies to be printed of  the  named
	 file. If no filename is provided than this argument is not used by smbspool.

       o The  options  argument  (argv[5])  contains  the print options in a single string and is
	 presently not used by smbspool.

       o The filename argument (argv[6]) contains the name of the file to print. If this argument
	 is not specified then the print file is read from the standard input.

       This man page is correct for version 2.2 of the Samba suite.

       smbd(8) and samba(7)

       smbspool was written by Michael Sweet at Easy Software Products.

       The  original  Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba
       is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the  Linux
       kernel is developed.

       The  original  Samba  man pages were written by Karl Auer.  The man page sources were con-
       verted to YODL format (another excellent piece  of  Open  Source  software,  available  at
       ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/ <URL:ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/>) and updated for the
       Samba 2.0 release by Jeremy Allison. The conversion to DocBook for Samba 2.2 was  done  by
       Gerald Carter
