A typical interface to a printer via EasySpooler would use the "llp" spooling
command, like this:
|uf60c -f <rulefile> | llp -odatat=c -d<printername>
If the destination is a lpr printer, then a filter code can be used to turn off filtering at the server end:
|uf60c -f <rulefile> | llp -Fl -d<printername>
The purpose of the -odatat=c and -Fl (that's -F and the letter "ell")
options is to force pass-through processing of UnForm's output. The -odatat=c
option specifies PCL output. An alternative is to specify binary output with
-odatat=b, although EasySpooler is then unable to count pages and therefore can't
provide page control features, such as restarting a job at a particular page.

control while sending the job out to the printer. Typically, this output is routed
through spooling software such as
