NAME

       printquote - give a quote for a print job

SYNOPSIS

       printquote[printer]filenames

DESCRIPTION

       printquote processes filenames and tells you how much each will cost to
       print. It uses the same code as printbill but doesn’t spool the job. If
       you specified a printer, charge rates and colourspace settings for that
       printer are used.  filename must be a file which your chosen filter may
       be  able  to convert to ghostscript. The default is to use /bin/cat, so
       unless you install magicfilter or similar you  will  only  be  able  to
       print PostScript files.

REQUIREMENTS

       printquote  requires  everything  that  the printbill package requires,
       including a working percentblack/percentcolour  and  GhostScript.  Make
       sure  you have specified a valid print filter in the configuration file
       if you want to print non-PostScript files (NOTE - this is NOT the  same
       as the optional print filter in /etc/printcap, although similar filters
       may be used - I recommend magicfilter).

INSTALLATION

       Please see the accompanying README file for installation  instructions.
       Chances are if you’re reading this it’s correctly installed.
