       cups-browsed  - A daemon for browsing the Bonjour broadcasts of shared,
       remote CUPS printers

       cups-browsed [-v | -d | --debug]

       cups-browsed has three independently switchable functions:

       1.  Browse Bonjour broadcasts  of  remote  printers  and	 create/remove
	   local raw queues pointing to these printers.

       2.  Browse  CUPS	 broadcasts of remote printers and create/remove local
	   raw queues pointing to these printers.

       3.  Broadcast local queues with the CUPS protocol.

       -v, -d, --debug
	      Debug mode


       Please take references to cups 1.6.x to include newer versions.	 Simi‐
       larily, cups 1.5.x is intended to encompass older versions too.

       In  environments	 with  only cups 1.6.x servers and clients (plus cups-
       browsed on either server or client or both) the function	 described  in
       1.   enables the automatic discovery of remote queues and their display
       in printing dialogues of applications and with command line tools.

       The facility provided by 3. means that servers running cups 1.6.x  plus
       cups-browsed can broadcast their local queues so that clients with cups
       1.5.x get these queues automatically available. The outcome  of	2.  is
       that  clients  running  cups  1.6.x  plus cups-browsed can use the CUPS
       broadcasts from servers with cups 1.5.x. As with	 browsing  of  Bonjour
       broadcasts,  the created local raw queues are available to applications
       and command line tools.
