We use the ERP package GLOVIA.
Printing from within this package is a hasle when having multiple network-printers. Is it possible to print MULTIPLE copies ($SPOOL) to a network printer. It works when printing to a UNIX defined printer.

thanks for the help

Roel,
Sorry I'm not familiar with that configuration.
I use SCO Unix. I think the printer systems on SCO and Sun are different.
However I'd take a shot at this by sending the report to a script which then sent the file to the network printer.

Here is a test lp interface file I used to use to send report files to a users' home dir. Uncomment the debug lines and look at the file to see which parameter sets the number of copies etc.



#
# example of lp positional parameters are:
#
# 1) todisk-7359,
# 2) rob , #login name
# 3) [was blank]
# 4) 1
# 5) stty='9600 cs8 -parenb'
# 6) /usr/spool/lp/temp/7359-1
#
filename=/u4/usr/$2/Rpt # our home dirs are in /u4/usr

# ************for debugging **********
# filename=rpt
#env > $filename
# echo $1 > $filename
# echo $2 >>$filename
# echo $3 >>$filename
# echo $4 >>$filename
# echo $5 >>$filename
# echo $2 >>$filename
# ************ end debug **************

cat $6 > $filename #you'd change this line to send file to print server.

Roel

We have considerable success with a package, LPPlus (from an american
software house Digital Controls). It sits along side or replaces the rudimentary
Sun lp and integrates into ProIV very nicely in a networked printer environment
We have considerable extended our print capability by using a combination of this
mainframe like print control package and our in house developed HP Laser printer
Printer formatting, keeping as much as possible out of ProIV. This does not come cheap, however,
but in a larger scale production environment is essential.
