       rlprrc - remote printing resource file


       The  rlprrc  configuration  file  is  consulted  by the remote printing commands (rlpr(1),
       rlpq(1), and rlprm(1)) to resolve a printqueue or a hostname. It can  be  used  to  either
       lookup a printqueue (printer) for a given host, or a host for a given printqueue.  If both
       the printer and the printhost are known, this file is never consulted.

       Initially, the remote printing commands look for the  file  .rlprrc  in  the  user's  home
       directory.   If that file cannot be found or does not provide the information necessary to
       resolve the query, then  the  system-wide  /etc/rlprrc  is  consulted  (if  present).   If
       resolution is still unsuccessful, the command fails.

       There is one entry per line - each line has the format:

       hostname: printer1 printer2 ... printerN

       Which  indicates that host hostname has printers printer1 printer2 ... printerN available.
       In the case where the remote printing command knows the host to print to but does not know
       which printer to use on that host, the first one (printer1 here) will be used.

       In  the  case where the remote printing command knows the printqueue (printer) to print to
       but does not know what host has  that  queue,  the  last  host  which  has  the  specified
       printqueue  is  used.  If this behavior is not acceptable, you can force a certain host to
       always be used for a certain printqueue by putting a ! after the printqueue name.

       For example, an .rlprrc file containing:

     litho laserjet4!
     laserjet4 lineprinter

       will always resolve the printqueue laserjet4 to no  matter  what  other  hosts
       have a printqueue named laserjet4.

       The rlprrc file is only consulted in situations where a printqueue or hostname needs to be
       resolved.  It is provided only for convenience and is not required.
