DESCRIPTION

       With nprint, you can print files on print  queues  of  a  NetWare  file
       server.

       There  are  a  lot of options, so you should probably wrap some default
       configurations into some shell scripts.

       nprint looks up the file $HOME/.nwclient to find a file server, a  user
       name  and  possibly  a  password. See nwclient(5) for more information.
       Please note that the access permissions of .nwclient MUST be  600,  for
       security reasons.



OPTIONS

       filename
          filename  is the name of the file you want to print. If file is ’-’,
          or no filename is given, standard input is used.

       -h
          -h is used to print out a short help text.

       -S server
          server is the name of the server you want to use.

       -U username
          username is the user name to  use  for  the  print  request  at  the
          server.

       -P password
          password is the password to use for the print request at the server.
          If neither -n nor -P are given, and the user has no open  connection
          to the server, nprint prompts for a password.

       -n
          -n should be given if no password is required for the print request.

       -C
          By default, passwords are converted to  uppercase  before  they  are
          sent  to the server, because most servers require this. You can turn
          off this conversion by -C.

       -q queuename
          queuename is the name of the print queue to use at the print server.
          At present, you must specify it in upper case characters.

       -d job-description
          job-description is the string that appears in pconsole when you list
          the jobs for the print queue. It will also appear in  the  "Descrip-
          tion" field on the banner page.

       -p pathname-in-banner
          pathname-in-banner  is  the string (up to 79 characters) you want to
          be printed in the "Directory" field on the banner page.

       -B username-in-banner
          username-in-banner is the string (up to 12 characters) you  want  to
          appear  on the lower part of the banner page. It will also appear in
          the "User name" field.

       -s
          Supress printing of banner page

       -f filename-in-banner
          filename-in-banner is the string (up to 12 characters) you  want  to
          appear  in  large  letters  on  the  lower  part of the banner page.
          Default: the name of the file that is printed, or ’stdin’.

       -l lines
          lines is the number of lines to put on one page. Default: 66.

       -r rows
          rows is the number of rows to put on one page. Default: 80.

       -c copies
          copies tells the print server to the  specified  number  of  copies.
          Default: 1.

       -t tabs
          tabs is the number of spaces to print for a Tab-Character.  Default:
          8.

       -T
          tells the print server to expand Tab-Character and use 8 spaces

       -N
          tells the print server not to use Form Feeds

       -F form-number
          form-number is the the number  of  the  form  to  be  put  into  the
          printer.  If  it’s  different from the one currently in the printer,
          your job is only printed if a printer operator has put in  the  cor-
          rect form.



NOTES

       The  ’-B’  option  was  formerly  ’-b’. But it conflicted with ’bindery
       only’ login option.
