     SMBSPOOL(8)     UNIX System V (19 November	2002)	   SMBSPOOL(8)

     NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
	  smbspool - send print	file to	an SMB printer

     SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  smbspool [ job ]  [ user ]  [	title ]	 [ copies ]  [ options
	  ]  [ filename	]

     DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
	  This tool is part of the  Samba suite.

	  smbspool is a	very small print spooling program that sends a
	  print	file to	an SMB printer.	The command-line arguments are
	  position-dependent for compatibility with the	Common UNIX
	  Printing System, but you can use smbspool with any printing
	  system or from a program or script.


	  smbspool specifies the destination using a Uniform Resource
	  Identifier ("URI") with a method of "smb". This string can
	  take a number	of forms:

	  o smb://server/printer

	  o smb://workgroup/server/printer

	  o smb://username:password@server/printer

	  o smb://username:password@workgroup/server/printer

	  smbspool tries to get	the URI	from argv[0]. If argv[0]
	  contains the name of the program then	it looks in the
	  DEVICE_URI environment variable.

	  Programs using the exec(2) functions can pass	the URI	in
	  argv[0], while shell scripts must set	the DEVICE_URI
	  environment variable prior to	running	smbspool.

     OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  o The	job argument (argv[1]) contains	the job	ID number and
	    is presently not used by smbspool.

	  o The	user argument (argv[2])	contains the print user's name
	    and	is presently not used by smbspool.

	  o The	title argument (argv[3]) contains the job title	string
	    and	is passed as the remote	file name when sending the
	    print job.

	  o The	copies argument	(argv[4]) contains the number of
	    copies to be printed of the	named file. If no filename is
	    provided than this argument	is not used by smbspool.

	  o The	options	argument (argv[5]) contains the	print options
	    in a single	string and is presently	not used by smbspool.

	  o The	filename argument (argv[6]) contains the name of the
	    file to print. If this argument is not specified then the
	    print file is read from the	standard input.

     VERSION    [Toc]    [Back]

     AUTHOR    [Toc]    [Back]
	  smbspool was written by Michael Sweet	at Easy	Software

	  The original Samba software and related utilities were
	  created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by	the
	  Samba	Team as	an Open	Source project similar to the way the
	  Linux	kernel is developed.

	  The original Samba man pages were written by Karl Auer. The
	  man page sources were	converted to YODL format (another
	  excellent piece of Open Source software, available at
	  <URL:ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/>) and updated for the
	  Samba	2.0 release by Jeremy Allison. The conversion to
	  DocBook for Samba 2.2	was done by Gerald Carter
