NAME

       spdinit - interpret setup files

SYNOPSIS

       spdinit printer formtype

DESCRIPTION

       spdinit is an internal program used by spd(8) to decode printer setup files for the
       GNUspool spooler and document management system.

       It is only ever intended to be invoked by the despooler process spd(8), and the interface
       is not in any way guaranteed in future releases.

       Output is to standard output, and it may be useful to run strings(1) on the result to see
       whether setup files have produced the expected result.

FILES

       gnuspool.conf master configuration file

       int-config message file

       /var/spool/gnuspool spool directory

       gnuspoolptrs printer setup file directory

       spshed_reps error log file

ENVIRONMENT

       SPOOLDIR alternative location for spool directory
       SPROGDIR alternative location for spool programs
       SPOOLPT alternative location for printer descriptions

SEE ALSO

       gspl-start(1), gnuspool.conf(5), gnuspool.hosts(5), spd(8), spshed(8).

DIAGNOSTICS

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

       Diagnostics are not written to any terminal but to the file spshed_reps.

       In the event of any problems (typically syntax errors) this file should be examined.
