     XKSPOOL(1)	  K-Spool by Xinet, Inc. (10/14/99 10.1)    XKSPOOL(1)

     NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
	  xkspool - command-line printer queue creation/removal

     SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  xkspool [ -createq qname ] -O	object [ -Z zone ]
	  xkspool -deleteq qname
	  xkspool -rescript

     DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
	  The program xkspool is a command-line	interface to a few of
	  the xktalk (1) GUI's printer maintenance duties.  It can
	  create and delete printers, or can updated printer queue
	  scripts.  Only the Super-User	(root) may use this program.

	  When run with	the -O option, a printer queue will be created
	  to the printer object	in the default zone if no -Z option is
	  specified.  The name of the queue can	be supplied with the
	  -createq option, but qname only overrides a queue name that
	  would	have been made from the	object name.  The final	queue
	  name may still be different if qname is not unique in	the
	  printing system.

	  With the -deleteq option, the	qname printer queue is
	  deleted, if it's possible to do so.

	  All out-of-date printer queue	scripts	(for existing queues)
	  may be updated with the -rescript option.  A queue's script
	  is out of date if the	current	version	being created is
	  higher than the ``SV'' key in	the print queue's
	  /etc/printcap	entry.	The ``SV'' key in /etc/printcap	is NOT
	  updated when scripts are updated in this way.

     DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  xkspool exits	with 0 status when the operation succeeds.  It
	  exits	with a non-zero	status and produces one	of many	error
	  messages to standard error when something fails.
