NAME

       ipptoolfile - ipptool file format

DESCRIPTION

       The ipptool(1) program accepts free-form plain text files that describe
       one or more IPP requests. Comments start with  the  "#"  character  and
       continue  to  the  end  of the line. Each request is enclosed by curley
       braces, for example:

           # This is a comment
           {
             # The name of the test
             NAME "Print PostScript Job"

             # The request to send
             OPERATION Print-Job
             GROUP operation-attributes-tag
             ATTR charset attributes-charset utf-8
             ATTR language attributes-natural-language en
             ATTR uri printer-uri $uri
             ATTR name requesting-user-name $user
             FILE testfile.ps

             # The response to expect
             STATUS successful-ok
             EXPECT attributes-charset OF-TYPE charset
             EXPECT attributes-natural-language OF-TYPE naturalLanguage
             EXPECT job-id OF-TYPE integer
             EXPECT job-uri OF-TYPE uri
           }
           {
             # The name of the test
             NAME "Get Attributes of PostScript Job"

             # The request to send
             OPERATION Get-Job-Attributes
             GROUP operation-attributes-tag
             ATTR charset attributes-charset utf-8
             ATTR language attributes-natural-language en
             ATTR uri printer-uri $uri
             ATTR integer job-id $job-id
             ATTR name requesting-user-name $user

             # The response to expect
             STATUS successful-ok

             EXPECT job-originating-user-name OF-TYPE name WITH-VALUE "$user"
           }

TOP-LEVEL DIRECTIVES

       The following directives can be used outside of a test:

       { test }
            Defines a test.

       DEFINE variable-name value
            Defines the named variable to the given value. This is  equivalent
            to  specifying  "-d  variable-name=value"  on the ipptool command-
            line.

       DEFINE-DEFAULT variable-name value
            Defines the named variable to the  given  value  if  it  does  not
            already have a value.

       IGNORE-ERRORS yes

       IGNORE-ERRORS no
            Specifies  whether,  by  default,  ipptool  will ignore errors and
            continue with subsequent tests.

       INCLUDE "filename"

       INCLUDE <filename>
            Includes another  test  file.  The  first  form  includes  a  file
            relative  to the current test file, while the second form includes
            a file from the ipptool include directory.

       INCLUDE-IF-DEFINED name "filename"

       INCLUDE-IF-DEFINED name <filename>
            Includes another test file if the named variable is  defined.  The
            first  form  includes  a  file  relative to the current test file,
            while the second form includes a file  from  the  ipptool  include
            directory.

       INCLUDE-IF-NOT-DEFINED name "filename"

       INCLUDE-IF-NOT-DEFINED name <filename>
            Includes  another  test file if the named variable is not defined.
            The first form includes a file relative to the current test  file,
            while  the  second  form  includes a file from the ipptool include
            directory.

       SKIP-IF-DEFINED variable-name

       SKIP-IF-NOT-DEFINED variable-name
            Specifies that the remainder of the test file  should  be  skipped
            when the variable is or is not defined.

       TRANSFER auto
            Specifies  that  tests  will,  by default, use "Transfer-Encoding:
            chunked" for requests with attached  files  and  "Content-Length:"
            for requests without attached files.

       TRANSFER chunked
            Specifies that tests will, by default, use the HTTP/1.1 "Transfer-
            Encoding: chunked" header. This is the default and  is  equivalent
            to  specifying  "-c"  on  the  ipptool  command-line.  Support for
            chunked requests is required for conformance with all versions  of
            IPP.

       TRANSFER length
            Specifies  that tests will, by default, use the HTTP/1.0 "Content-
            Length:" header. This is equivalent  to  specifying  "-l"  on  the
            ipptool  command-line.   Support  for  content  length requests is
            required for conformance with all versions of IPP.

       VERSION 1.0

       VERSION 1.1

       VERSION 2.0

       VERSION 2.1

       VERSION 2.2
            Specifies the default IPP version number to use for the tests that
            follow.

TEST DIRECTIVES

       The following directives are understood in a test:

       ATTR tag attribute-name value(s)
            Adds an attribute to the test request. Values are separated by the
            comma (",") character - escape commas using the "

       ATTR collection attribute-name { MEMBER tag member-name value(s) ...  }
       [ ... { ... } ]
            Adds a collection attribute to the test request. Member attributes
            follow the same syntax as regular attributes and can themselves be
            nested collections.  Multiple collection values can be supplied as
            needed.

       DELAY seconds
            Specifies a delay before this test will be run.

       DISPLAY attribute-name
            Specifies that value of the named attribute should  be  output  as
            part of the test report.

       EXPECT attribute-name [ predicate(s) ]

       EXPECT ?attribute-name predicate(s)

       EXPECT !attribute-name
            Specifies  that  the  response must/may/must not include the named
            attribute.  Additional requirements can be added as  predicates  -
            see  the  "EXPECT  PREDICATES"  section  for  more  information on
            predicates.

       FILE filename
            Specifies a file to include at the end of  the  request.  This  is
            typically used when sending a test print file.

       GROUP tag
            Specifies the group tag for subsequent attributes in the request.

       IGNORE-ERRORS yes

       IGNORE-ERRORS no
            Specifies  whether  ipptool  will  ignore errors and continue with
            subsequent tests.

       NAME "literal string"
            Specifies the human-readable name of the test.

       OPERATION operation-code
            Specifies the operation to be performed.

       REQUEST-ID number

       REQUEST-ID random
            Specifies the request-id value to use in the  request,  either  an
            integer  or  the  word  "random" to use a randomly generated value
            (the default).

       RESOURCE path
            Specifies an alternate resource path that is  used  for  the  HTTP
            POST  request.   The default is the resource from the URI provided
            to the ipptool program.

       SKIP-IF-DEFINED variable-name

       SKIP-IF-NOT-DEFINED variable-name
            Specifies that  the  current  test  should  be  skipped  when  the
            variable is or is not defined.

       SKIP-PREVIOUS-ERROR yes

       SKIP-PREVIOUS-ERROR no
            Specifies  whether  ipptool  will  skip  the  current  test if the
            previous test resulted in an error/failure.

       STATUS status-code [ predicate ]
            Specifies  an  expected  response  status-code  value.  Additional
            requirements  can  be  added  as  predicates  -  see  the  "STATUS
            PREDICATES" section for more information on predicates.

       TRANSFER auto
            Specifies that this test will use "Transfer-Encoding: chunked"  if
            it has an attached file or "Content-Length:" otherwise.

       TRANSFER chunked
            Specifies that this test will use the HTTP/1.1 "Transfer-Encoding:
            chunked" header.

       TRANSFER length
            Specifies that this test will use the  HTTP/1.0  "Content-Length:"
            header.

       VERSION 1.0

       VERSION 1.1

       VERSION 2.0

       VERSION 2.1

       VERSION 2.2
            Specifies the IPP version number to use for this test.

EXPECT PREDICATES

       The  following  predicates  are  understood  following  the EXPECT test
       directive:

       COUNT number
            Requires the EXPECT attribute to  have  the  specified  number  of
            values.

       DEFINE-MATCH variable-name
            Defines  the  variable to "1" when the EXPECT condition matches. A
            side-effect of this predicate is that this EXPECT will never  fail
            a test.

       DEFINE-NO-MATCH variable-name
            Defines  the  variable  to  "1" when the EXPECT condition does not
            match. A side- effect of this predicate is that this  EXPECT  will
            never fail a test.

       DEFINE-VALUE variable-name
            Defines the variable to the value of the attribute when the EXPECT
            condition matches.

       IF-DEFINED variable-name
            Makes the EXPECT conditions apply only if the  specified  variable
            is defined.

       IF-NOT-DEFINED variable-name
            Makes  the  EXPECT conditions apply only if the specified variable
            is not defined.

       IN-GROUP tag
            Requires the EXPECT attribute to be in the specified group tag.

       OF-TYPE tag[,tag,...]
            Requires the EXPECT attribute to use the specified value tag(s).

       SAME-COUNT-AS attribute-name
            Requires the EXPECT attribute to have the same number of values as
            the specified parallel attribute.

       WITH-VALUE "literal string"
            Requires  at  least one value of the EXPECT attribute to match the
            literal string.  Comparisons are case-sensitive.

       WITH-VALUE "/regular expression/"
            Requires that all values of the EXPECT attribute match the regular
            expression,  which  must  conform  to the POSIX regular expression
            syntax.  Comparisons are case-sensitive.

STATUS PREDICATES

       The following predicates  are  understood  following  the  STATUS  test
       directive:

       IF-DEFINED variable-name
            Makes the STATUS apply only if the specified variable is defined.

       IF-NOT-DEFINED variable-name
            Makes  the  STATUS  apply  only  if  the specified variable is not
            defined.
