SCOadmin printer model stanza file
is a database containing configuration information
for supported printers. The Printer Manager
uses this file to add new printers.
The file includes a text description of each
supported printer's make and model, pointers to a printer interface
script, and a
entry. It can also contain additional
information such as required serial line settings or supported
content types. This provides a clear and easy
way of adding new printers without needing to know details beyond
the actual text description of the printer.
The following attributes can be specified:
In addition each printer must have a unique keyname.
Here are some example entries:
a quoted comma-separated list of the content
types supported for a printer, usually just
`PS' (for postscript), `pcl' (for HP's Printer
Control Language), or `simple' (for most other
printers). Additional content types can be supported
by creating print filters - see
This attribute is optional.
the printer interface script name (in most
cases this should be set to standard). This
attribute is mandatory.
a text description of a printer make/model. This attribute is manadatory.
the name of the terminfo script associated with
this printer. This attribute is optional.
any serial or parallel line settings appropriate
for the printer. This attribute is optional.
