       smbspool  [  job  ]   [  user  ]  [ title ]  [ copies ]  [
       options ]  [ filename ]


       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:

       ˇ smb://server/printer

       ˇ smb://workgroup/server/printer

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

       ˇ 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 envi­
       ronment variable prior to running smbspool.


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

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

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

       ˇ 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.


       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,  avail­
       able           at          ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/
       <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
