Swiss Army's knife of advanced CUPS administrators

Description

Tea4CUPS is a CUPS backend wrapper which can capture print datas before they are sent to a printer and process, duplicate or dispatch them in a number of ways.

Tea4CUPS is the Swiss Army's knife of the advanced CUPS administrator, and can easily replace or extend most of the existing specialized CUPS backends (pdf, email, ftp, etc...).

You are greatly encouraged to use this software instead of writing your own CUPS backends: Tea4CUPS will let you plug your own scripts, filters, tools, or commands wherever you want, while giving them access to all the print job's characteristics in a consistent way.

Tea4CUPS makes all information about the current print job, in particular the job's datas and attributes, available to your own commands through environment variables.

The possibilities are endless:

  - Your own commands can optionally decide to discard the current print job
    instead of printing it.
  - Send the same job to several printers at the same time, which is not
    possible with CUPS.
  - Automate the PDF archiving of all print jobs.
  - Forbid duplicate print jobs (a simple example is shown in the sample
    configuration file).
  - Easily create a print accounting solution.
