CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System)

The Common UNIX Printing System provides a portable printing layer for UNIX(R)-like operating systems. It has been developed by Easy Software Products to promote a standard printing solution for all UNIX vendors and users. CUPS uses the Internet Printing Protocol ("IPP") as the basis for managing print jobs and queues. The CUPS package includes System V and Berkeley command-line interfaces, a PostScript RIP package for supporting non-PostScript printer drivers, and tools for creating additional printer drivers and other CUPS services.
