I'm trying to find information regarding printing devices & queues.
In Maintain Device Data
, ttaad3100m000, the field "Device Queue" has the following for help text:
The queue name of the printer as used by the printer spooler. If device type is "Direct" you can enter a program (on UNIX level) with parameters which is executed to print the report. For example: /bin/lp -c -dmt910 -n%d %s. In that case the printer job should not be handled by the printer daemon.
What other parameters can be passed on the device queue line?
Ultimately what I'd like to do is pass to the shell script the 'Sequence Number' of the current print job found in session ttaad3210m000 Maintain Device Queue
for tracking purposes, but only for one specific device and all reports being spooled to it.
I'm trying to trace an issue back to whether it's a system issue or a process issue.
