Package description for 'cups'

Common Unix Printing System

 CUPS provides a portable printing layer for UNIX(r)-based operating
 systems.  It has been developed by Easy Software Products to provide
 a standard printing solution for all UNIX vendors and users. CUPS
 provides the System V and Berkeley command-line interfaces.

 CUPS uses the Internet Printing Protocol (IETF-IPP) as the basis
 for managing print jobs and queues. The Line Printer Daemon (LPD,
 RFC1179), Server Message Block (SMB), and AppSocket protocols are
 also supported with reduced functionality. CUPS adds network printer
 browsing and PostScript Printer Description ("PPD")-based printing
 options to support real world applications under UNIX.

 CUPS also includes a customized version of GNU GhostScript (currently
 based off GNU GhostScript 4.03) and an image file RIP that can be
 used to support non-PostScript printers.
