TRUE64 SENDING JOBS


I use this script in
tru64 unix -Alpha
servers to send jobs to
all printers.

#!/bin/ksh
# this script is sending
# the required printing
# job to all printers
# already configured in
# your system,

cat /etc/printcap|grep "|" |cut -f 1 -d "|" | while read line anything
do
echo " sending file $1 to printer $line "
echo " lpr -P$line " $1
sleep 1
echo " to stop printing, press ctrl+c"
clear
lpr -P$line $1
done
