NAME

       plpprintd - Daemon for printing via PC from a Psion.

SYNOPSIS

       plpprintd [-d] [-h] [-v] [-V] [-s spooldir] [-c print-cmd] [-p [host:]port] [long-options]

DESCRIPTION

       plpprintd  provides a print server for a Psion, connected to the PC.  Using plpprintd, you
       can use the Psion's "Print via PC" feature to access any printer, available  on  your  PC.
       When  receiving  a  print  job,  the  data  is converted to Postscript® and then send to a
       printer.

OPTIONS

       -d, --debug
              Enable additional debug messages and stay in foreground (do not fork).

       -h, --help
              Display a short help text and exit.

       -v, --verbose
              Increase verbosity

       -V, --version
              Display the version and exit

       -s, --spooldir=dir
              Specify a directory to use for temporary spool files. If this option is missing,  a
              builtin default /var/spool/plpprint is used.

       -c, --printcmd=cmd
              Specify  a  command  for actually sending a print job to the printer. The specified
              command must receive the data from its standard input. If this option is missing, a
              builtin default lpr -Ppsion is used.

       -p, --port=[host:]port
              Specify  the host and port to connect to (e.g. The port where ncpd is listening on)
              - by default the host is 127.0.0.1 and the port is looked up in  /etc/services.  If
              it is not found there, a builtin value of 7501 is used.

       FILES

       @PKGDATA@/prolog.ps
              contains the Postscript(®) dictionary, needed for printing the jobs.

       @PKGDATA@/fontmap
              specifies  the  font  mapping  to be used. This file is used to convert the Psion's
              font names into valid Postscript(®) font names. Its  format  is  described  at  the
              beginning  of  it.  If a Psion font name is received which can not be found in this
              file, a builtin default Courier is used.

BUGS

       Using patterns in diagrams gives ugly results.
