foomatic-getpjloptions hostname port
foomatic-getpjloptions Sends a set of PJL commands and reads back the
PJL options and status from a printer over a network connection or
device bidirectional interface such as parallel, USB, serial. printers
to standard output. The output can be piped into foomatic-addpjloptions
to add options to the database.
device The interface to which a local printer is connected, e.g.
/dev/lp0, /dev/usb/lp0, /dev/tty00, etc. For a parallel
port, you must have bidirectional support enabled at the BIOS
level and the parallel port driver must support the bidirec-

hostname Host name or IP address of a network printer (HP JetDirect,
port Port on which your network printer listens for socket (App-

project using output from the associated binary. Modified by Patrick
Powell <papowell at lprng.com> to provide betters support for network
printers, error messages, and remove CR and FF from output.
Uni-directional protocols as remote LPD are not supported as no status
is returned. Some network print servers which attach to a printer par-
allel port do not support birectional mode.
