Integration with Plossys

This is how we generally integrate with a UNIX print queue (AIX, BSD, CUPS, SysV etc.)

By means of some of the first lines in the configuration file "hp4600aix" , which the Add Printer dialogue generates when you add a printer (in this case an HP Color LaserJet 4600).

It is only EasyCopy, that generates data to the plotters and/or printers, and not drivers in your Plossys plot management system. Therefore output from EasyCopy should be transported TRANSPARENTLY through Plossys (Plossys is only going to spool, not format convert).

An example of a "Print Command" line in EasyCopy, instead of:

lpr -P$PQ -\#$NC -h

it could be something like:

plossysclient -ps -pq -plotmode transparent

Your "plossysclient" command must be able to receive and deliver data on "standard in". Otherwise we will have to make a script and wrap the command.
