NAME

       Net::CUPS - Common Unix Printing System Interface

SYNOPSIS

         use Net::CUPS;

         my $cups = Net::CUPS->new();

         my $printer = $cups->getDestination( "lj4200dn" );

DESCRIPTION

       Net::CUPS is an object oriented interface to the Common Unix Printing System.

METHODS

       getDestination
           my $printer = $cups->getDestination( $printer_name );

           This method takes the name of the printer to acquire.  If the printer does not exist
           it will return nothing.

       getDestinations
           my @printers = $cups->getDestinations();

           This method will return an array of destinations currently configured on the cups
           server.

       getPassword
           my $password = $cups->getPassword( $prompt );

           Method to retrieve the password from the user via the password callback.

       getPPD
           my $ppd = $cups->getPPD( $name );

           Returns a Net::CUPS::PPD object for the default printer or for the specified printer
           or class.

       getPPDMakes
           my $makes = $cups->getPPDMakes();

           Returns an arrary of scalers holding the names of all the makers (e.g. HP or Lexmark)
           of PPD files installed on the CUPS server

       getAllPPDs
           my $ppds = $cups->getAllPPDs();

           Returns an array of scalers with the maker and model of all the PPDs installed on the
           CUPS server

       getPPDFileName
           $cups->getPPDFileName($ppd_name_and_make);

           Returns the file name of the PPD specified by the name and make as found in the array
           returned by getAllPPDs.  The file name is used by addDestination and is relative to
           where the CUPS server is instructed to look (e.g /usr/share/ppd).

       getServer
           my $server_name = $cups->getServer();

           A method to return either the hostname or the IP address of the active print server.

       getUsername
           my $username = $cups->getUsername();

           This method will return the current username associated with the CUPS transaction.

       requestData
           my $result = $cups->requestData( $request, $resource, $filename );

           Send an IPP request to the server.  This function is based off the C CUPS function
           cupsDoRequest and cupsDoRequestFile.  The $filename is optional.

       setPasswordCB
           $cups->setPasswordCB( $function )

           Method to set the callback function to be used by getPassword.

       setServer
           $cups->setServer( $server_ip );

           This method will change the current cups server to another hosts.

       setUsername
           $cups->setUsername( $username );

           A method to change the username associated with CUPS interaction.

       deleteDestination
           $cups->deleteDestination( $destination_name );

           A method to delete an existing destination

       addDestination
           $cups->addDestination( $name, $location, $printer_info, $ppd_name, $device_uri) A
           method to create a new destination.  The $ppd_name variable should be the one returned
           for that printer by the getPPDFileName method.  It will be relative to where the CUPS
           server is configured to look for PPD files (e.g. /usr/share/ppd).
