Thanks to Charles Hedrick <firstname.lastname@example.org>
for a massive set of fixes for status gathering and printing for postscript
printers, that has been incorporated into this filter as well.
Error reporting is done as follows:
1. logged to the printer status file (:ps=status:)
2. logged to the syslog daemon if the message has 'ALERT' in it.
3. sent to a 'summaryfile'. This file can be either a file
OR a UDP socket on a host. This is specified with the
-Tsummary=summaryfile option. For example
ifhp -Tsummary=taco%3000 would send messages to UDP port 3000
on host taco.
4. If you do not want all of the printer status, you can specify
-Tquiet, or compile it with the -DQUIET option to suppress by
To assist with logging, the monitor.c file contains a simple
prototype for a system monitor.
