SYNOPSIS

       filter job user title num-copies options [ filename ]


DESCRIPTION

       The  CUPS  filter interface provides a standard method for
       adding support for new document types to CUPS. Each filter
       is capable of converting from one or more input formats to
       another format that can  either  be  printed  directly  or
       piped into another filter to get it to a printable format.

       Filters must be capable of reading from a filename on  the
       command-line or from the standard input, copying the stan­
       dard input to a temporary file as  required  by  the  file
       format. All output must be sent to the standard output.

       The  command name (argv[0]) is set to the name of the des­
       tination printer.


ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       The following environment variables  are  defined  by  the
       CUPS server when executing each filter:

       CHARSET
            The default text character set (typically us-ascii or
            iso-8859-1).

       CLASS
            When a job is submitted to a printer class,  contains
            the  name of the destination printer class. Otherwise
            this environment variable will not be set.

       CONTENT_TYPE
            The MIME type associated with the file (e.g. applica­
            tion/postscript).

       CUPS_DATADIR
            The directory where data files can be found.

       CUPS_SERVERROOT
            The root directory of the server.

       DEVICE_URI
            The device-uri associated with the printer.

       LANG
            The default language locale (typically C or en).

       PATH
            The  standard  execution  path  for external programs
            that may be run by the filter.

       PPD
            CUPS/1.1).

       TZ
            The timezone of the server.

       USER
            The  user executing the filter, typically lp; consult
            the cupsd.conf file for the current setting.


COMPATIBILITY

       While the filter interface is  compatible  with  System  V
       interface  scripts,  it  will  only work with the System V
       interface script as the only filter.  Typically the inter­
       face  script  will  be provided via the lpadmin(8) command
       using the -i option.
