       plpprintd - Daemon for printing via PC from a Psion.


       plpprintd  [-d]  [-h]  [-v]  [-V]  [-s  spooldir]  [-c  print-cmd]  [-p
       [host:]port] [long-options]


       plpprintd provides a print server for a Psion,  connected  to  the  PC.
       Using  plpprintd,  you  can  use  the Psion’s "Print via PC" feature to
       access any printer, available on your PC. When receiving a  print  job,
       the data is converted to Postscript® and then send to a printer.

       -s, --spooldir=dir
              Specify a directory to use for temporary spool  files.  If  this
              option  is  missing,  a  builtin  default /var/spool/plpprint is

       -c, --printcmd=cmd
              Specify a command for  actually  sending  a  print  job  to  the
              printer.  The  specified  command must receive the data from its
              standard input. If this option is missing, a builtin default lpr
              -Ppsion is used.

       -p, --port=[host:]port
              Specify  the  host  and  port to connect to (e.g. The port where
              ncpd is listening on) - by default the host is and the
              port  is looked up in /etc/services. If it is not found there, a
              builtin value of 7501 is used.

              convert the Psion’s font names  into  valid  Postscript(®)  font
              names.  Its  format  is  described  at the beginning of it. If a
              Psion font name is received which can not be found in this file,
              a builtin default Courier is used.


       Using patterns in diagrams gives ugly results.
