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   appropriate   printer   section  in
       /etc/printcap. You can generate such an entry using foomatic-configure.

       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.
