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 attributes-charset OF-TYPE charset
             EXPECT attributes-natural-language OF-TYPE naturalLanguage

             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.
            A side-effect of this predicate is that this EXPECT will never fail a test.

       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).

       REPEAT-MATCH

       REPEAT-NO-MATCH
            Specifies that the current test should be repeated when the EXPECT condition  matches
            or does not match.

       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.

       REPEAT-MATCH

       REPEAT-NO-MATCH
            Specifies that the current test should be  repeated  when  the  response  status-code
            matches or does not match the value specified by the STATUS directive.
