NAME

       spd - spool despooler

SYNOPSIS

       spd printer name printer-number

DESCRIPTION

       spd is the spool despooler process for the GNUspool spooler and document management
       system.

       It is only ever intended to be invoked by the scheduler process spshed(8), and the effect
       of a user invoking this process is not defined.

       The arguments are the printer name and the slot number in shared memory which refers to
       it.

       spshed(8), spdinit(8), gnuspool.conf(5), gnuspool.hosts(5).

DIAGNOSTICS

       spd is usually invoked indirectly, via spshed(8) from system startup procedures or other
       programs such as gspl-start(1).

       Thereafter it runs as a "daemon process" and diagnostics are not written to any terminal
       but to the file spshed_reps.

       In the event of any problems this file should be examined.
