NAME

       XpGetPrinterList - Retrieves a list of all printers supported on an X Print Server.

SYNOPSIS

             cc [ flag... ] file... -lXp [ library... ]
             #include <X11/extensions/Print.h>

       XPPrinterList XpGetPrinterList ( display, printer_name, list_count_return )
             Display *display;
             char *printer_name;
             int *list_count_return;

ARGUMENTS

       display
              Specifies a pointer to the Display structure; returned from XOpenDisplay.

       printer_name
              Specifies  the  name of the printer for which information is desired. If NULL, then
              information is returned for all printers associated with the server.

       list_count_return
              Returns the number of printers in the list.

DESCRIPTION

       XpGetPrinterList returns a list of printer records where each record describes  a  printer
       supported by the X Print Server, or NULL if any errors occur.

       If  printer_name  is  NULL,  then  a  list  of  all  printers  supported  is  returned. If
       printer_name is non-NULL, only print records matching printer_name are returned, and if no
       records match printer_name , then NULL is returned.

       printer_name  is a COMPOUND_TEXT string, and the name and desc fields in the returned list
       will be in COMPOUND_TEXT (note, ISO 8859-1 (Latin-1) is a proper subset of  COMPOUND_TEXT,
       so  can be used directly). If printer_name is in a code-set that the X Print Server cannot
       convert (into its operating code-set), then the X Print Server  may  fail  to  locate  the
       requested  printer.   If printer_name is NULL, then all printer names, regardless of their
       code-set, can be returned, leaving the task of specific  printer  recognition  up  to  the
       caller.

       When  XpGetPrinterList  is called, the caller's locale (see XpSetLocaleHinter) is included
       in the request as a "hint" to the X Print Server. If supported by the implementation,  the
       X Print Server will use the hint to locate a localized description for each printer in the
       list. If the X Print Server cannot understand the hint, the X Print Server will  choose  a
       default.  The returned printer list can be freed by calling XpFreePrinterList.

       The XPPrinterList structure defined in <X11/extensions/Print.h> contains:

       typedef struct {
           char *name;     /∗ name */
           char *desc;     /∗ localized description */
       } XPPrinterRec, *XPPrinterList;

DIAGNOSTICS

       BadAlloc       Insufficient memory.
