       foomatic-getpjloptions device

       foomatic-getpjloptions hostname port

       foomatic-getpjloptions  Sends  a set of PJL commands and reads back the
       PJL options and status from a printer  over  a  network	connection  or
       device bidirectional interface such as parallel, USB, serial.  printers
       to standard output. The output can be piped into foomatic-addpjloptions
       to add options to the database.

       device	 The  interface	 to  which  a local printer is connected, e.g.
		 /dev/lp0, /dev/usb/lp0,  /dev/tty00,  etc.   For  a  parallel
		 port, you must have bidirectional support enabled at the BIOS
		 level and the parallel port driver must support the  bidirec‐
		 tional	 mode.	 Check	your  parallel	port BIOS settings for
		 EPP/bi-directional mode.

       hostname	 Host name or IP address of a network printer  (HP  JetDirect,
		 DLINK, etc.).

       port	 Port  on  which your network printer listens for socket (App‐
		 socket) connections.  Most common ports are 9100 (JetDirect),
		 10000 (DLINK).	 Usually you can configure the port via a con‐
		 figuration interface.

       foomatic-getpjloptions returns ???

       Manfred	Wassmann  <>  for	the   foomatic
       project	using  output from the associated binary.  Modified by Patrick
       Powell <papowell at> to provide betters support  for  network
       printers, error messages, and remove CR and FF from output.

       Uni-directional	protocols as remote LPD are not supported as no status
       is returned.  Some network print servers which attach to a printer par‐
       allel port do not support bidirectional mode.
