     LPQSERVER(1M)   K-Spool by	Xinet (10/14/99	10.1)	 LPQSERVER(1M)

     NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
	  lpqserver - service requests from the	Macintosh K-Spool
	  Monitor desk accessory

     SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  /usr/etc/appletalk/lpqserver [-D] [-L] [-Z zone ] [ -O
	  spoolername ]	printername
	  /usr/etc/appletalk/lpqserver [-D] [-L] -E command

     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	  lpqserver is obsolete.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
