2        sends a print file to an SMB printer. The command-line arguments
3        are position-dependent for compatibility with the Common UNIX
4        Printing System, but you can use smbspool with any printing system
5        or from a program or script.</p><p><span class="emphasis"><em>DEVICE URI</em></span></p><p>smbspool specifies the destination using a Uniform Resource
6        Identifier ("URI") with a method of "smb". This string can take
7        a number of forms:</p><div class="itemizedlist"><ul type="disc"><li><p>smb://server[:port]/printer</p></li><li><p>smb://workgroup/server[:port]/printer</p></li><li><p>smb://username:password@server[:port]/printer</p></li><li><p>smb://username:password@workgroup/server[:port]/printer</p></li></ul></div><p>smbspool tries to get the URI from the environment variable
8        <code class="envar">DEVICE_URI</code>. If <code class="envar">DEVICE_URI</code> is not present,
9        smbspool will use argv[0] if that starts with &#8220;<span class="quote">smb://</span>&#8221; 
10        or argv[1] if that is not the case.</p><p>Programs using the <span><strong class="command">exec(2)</strong></span> functions can
11        pass the URI in argv[0], while shell scripts must set the
12        <code class="envar">DEVICE_URI</code> environment variable prior to
13        running smbspool.</p></div><div class="refsect1" lang="en"><a name="id259383"></a><h2>OPTIONS</h2><div class="itemizedlist"><ul type="disc"><li><p>The job argument (argv[1]) contains the
14                job ID number and is presently not used by smbspool.
15                </p></li><li><p>The user argument (argv[2]) contains the
16                print user's name and is presently not used by smbspool.
17                </p></li><li><p>The title argument (argv[3]) contains the
18                job title string and is passed as the remote file name
19                when sending the print job.</p></li><li><p>The copies argument (argv[4]) contains
20                the number of copies to be printed of the named file. If
21                no filename is provided then this argument is not used by
22                smbspool.</p></li><li><p>The options argument (argv[5]) contains
23                the print options in a single string and is currently
24                not used by smbspool.</p></li><li><p>The filename argument (argv[6]) contains the
25                name of the file to print. If this argument is not specified
26                then the print file is read from the standard input.</p></li></ul></div></div><div class="refsect1" lang="en"><a name="id259427"></a><h2>VERSION</h2><p>This man page is correct for version 3.0 of the Samba suite.</p></div><div class="refsect1" lang="en"><a name="id259437"></a><h2>SEE ALSO</h2><p><a href="smbd.8.html"><span class="citerefentry"><span class="refentrytitle">smbd</span>(8)</span></a> and <a href="samba.7.html"><span class="citerefentry"><span class="refentrytitle">samba</span>(7)</span></a>.</p></div><div class="refsect1" lang="en"><a name="id260378"></a><h2>AUTHOR</h2><p><span><strong class="command">smbspool</strong></span> was written by Michael Sweet
27        at Easy Software Products.</p><p>The original Samba software and related utilities
28        were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed
29        by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar
30        to the way the Linux kernel is developed.</p><p>The original Samba man pages were written by Karl Auer.
31        The man page sources were converted to YODL format (another
32        excellent piece of Open Source software, available at <a href="" target="_top">
33</a>) and updated for the Samba 2.0
34        release by Jeremy Allison.  The conversion to DocBook for
35        Samba 2.2 was done by Gerald Carter. The conversion to DocBook XML 4.2
36        for Samba 3.0 was done by Alexander Bokovoy.</p></div></div></body></html>
