DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
lpqserver is obsolete. The functionality is now available
in spoolserv. The lpqserver is a server that provides
information to the Macintosh K-Spool Monitor desk accessory.
It accepts requests from Macintoshes, and responds with
information gained by executing lpq(1) (for lpr systems) or
lpstat(1) (for lp systems), or by attempting to read the
various files in the printer's spool directory.
The lpqserver is invoked with an argument naming an entry in
the printcap(5) file. Flags include:
-D turns on debugging
causes the name spoolername to appear on the Macintosh.
It should be the same spooler name that was given to
-L makes lpqserver assume lp is being used rather than lpr
on systems where lpr is the default (SGI and SUN).
This option is useful only on SGI machines (where the
lp and lpr systems both exist), and the user wants to
route the jobs through lp.
-E causes lpqserver to invoke command rather than lpq(1).
The lpqserver is usually started by atinit(1m) from entries
in the /usr/etc/appletalk/services file.
If the printer is an AppleTalk printer, lpqserver will also
try to update the status file if there are no jobs in the
