Projects / gnulpr


GNUlpr version 1.0 is a complete printing system based on LPR, and provides support for printer-specific options, GUI tools, and autoconfiguration. The 1.1 tree is a completely re-thought printing system. Rather than creating an all-powerful spooling daemon, it constructs a pipeline of "filter" programs to perform tasks (spooling, data stream type conversion, authentication, network protocols, etc.).
