Unix Tip #4470- June 7, 2018
PRINTING WITH NO SPACE
Sometimes there isn't enough space
in the spooling directory to print
a large file. This isn't the case
so much anymore since disk drives
are so large now.
If the file fills up the spooling
directory use and you are using
BSD "lpr" then you can pass it
the -s option.
This will create a symlink to the
file instead of coping it.
"lp" creates a symlink by default.
You can use the -c options to
force it to copy the file instead,
Some flavors differ, check yours.
