NAME

       ippfind - find internet printing protocol printers

SYNOPSIS

       ippfind  [ options ] regtype[,subtype][.domain.] ... [ expression ...  ] ippfind [ options
       ] name[.regtype[.domain.]] ... [ expression ...  ] ippfind --help ippfind --version

OPTIONS

       --help
            Show program help

       --version
            Show program version

       -4   Use IPv4 when listing

       -6   Use IPv6 when listing

       -T seconds
            Specify find timeout in seconds. If 1 or less, ippfind stops as soon as it thinks  it
            has found everything. The default is 1 second.

       -V version
            Specifies the IPP version when listing. Supported values are 1.1, 2.0, 2.1, and 2.2.

DESCRIPTION

       ippfind  finds  services  registered with a DNS server or available through local devices.
       Its primary purpose is to find IPP printers  and  show  their  URIs,  show  their  current
       status, or run commands. For example, to show the status of all registered IPP printers on
       your network, run:
           ippfind --ls
       Similarly, to send a PostScript test page to every PostScript printer, run:
           ippfind --txt-pdl application/postscript --exec ipptool \
               -f onepage-letter.ps '{}' print-job.test \;

REGISTRATION TYPES

       ippfind supports the following registration types:

       _http._tcp
            HyperText Transport Protocol (HTTP, RFC 2616)

       _https._tcp
            Secure HyperText Transport Protocol (HTTPS, RFC 2818)

       _ipp._tcp
            Internet Printing Protocol (IPP, RFC 2911)

       _ipps._tcp
            Secure Internet Printing Protocol (IPPS, draft)

       _printer._tcp
            Line Printer Daemon (LPD, RFC 1179)

EXPRESSIONS

       ippfind supports expressions much like the find(1) utility. However, unlike find,  ippfind
       uses POSIX regular expressions instead of shell filename matching patterns. If --exec, -l,
       --ls, -p, --print, --print-name, -q, --quiet, -s, or -x is  not  specified,  ippfind  adds
       --print  to  print  the  service  URI  of anything it finds. The following expressions are
       supported:

       -d regex

       --domain regex
            True if the domain matches the given regular expression.

       --false
            Always false.

       -h regex

       --host regex
            True is the hostname matches the given regular expression.

       -l

       --ls Lists attributes returned by Get-Printer-Attributes for IPP printers and  traditional
            find  "-ls"  output for HTTP URLs. The result is true if the URI is accessible, false
            otherwise.

       --local
            True if the service is local to this computer.

       -n regex

       --name regex
            True if the service instance name matches the given regular expression.

       --path regex
            True if the URI resource path matches the given regular expression.

       -P number[-number]

       --port number[-number]
            True if the port matches the given number or range.

       -p

       --print
            Prints the URI if the result of previous expressions is true. The  result  is  always
            true.

       -q

       --quiet
            Quiet mode - just returns the exit codes below.

       -r

       --remote
            True if the service is not local to this computer.

       -s

       --print-name
            Prints  the  service instance name if the result of previous expressions is true. The
            result is always true.

       --true
            Always true.

       -t key

       --txt key
            True if the TXT record contains the named key.

       --txt-key regex
            True if the TXT  record  contains  the  named  key  and  matches  the  given  regular
            expression.

       -u regex

       --uri regex
            True if the URI matches the given regular expression.

       -x utility [argument ...] ;

       --exec utility [argument ...] ;
            Executes  the  specified program if the current result is true. "{foo}" arguments are
            replaced with the corresponding value - see SUBSTITUTIONS below.

       Expressions may also contain modifiers:

       ( expression )
            Group the result of expressions.

       ! expression

       --not expression
            Unary NOT of the expression.

       expression expression

       expression --and expression
            Logical AND of expressions.

       expression --or expression
            Logical OR of expressions.

       The substitutions for "{foo}" in -e and --exec are:

            Service instance name, e.g., "My Fine Printer".

       {service_port}
            Port number for server, typically 631 for IPP and 80 for HTTP.

       {service_regtype}
            DNS-SD registration type, e.g., "_ipp._tcp", "_http._tcp", etc.

       {service_scheme}

            etc.

       {txt_key}
            Value of TXT record key (lowercase).

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       When  executing  a  program,  ippfind  sets  the  following  environment variables for the

            Service instance name, e.g., "My Fine Printer".

       IPPFIND_SERVICE_PORT
            Port number for server, typically 631 for IPP and 80 for HTTP.

       IPPFIND_SERVICE_REGTYPE
            DNS-SD registration type, e.g., "_ipp._tcp", "_http._tcp", etc.

       IPPFIND_SERVICE_URI

            etc.

       IPPFIND_TXT_KEY
            Values of TXT record KEY (uppercase).

EXIT CODES

       ippfind  returns 0 if the result for all processed expressions is true, 1 if the result of
       any processed expression is false, 2 if browsing or any query or resolution failed,  3  if
       an undefined option or invalid expression was specified, and 4 if it ran out of memory.
