Net::CUPS::Destination - CUPS Destination Object
use Net::CUPS::Destination; my $printer = $cups->getDestination( "lj4200dn" ); my $name = $printer->getName(); my @options = $printer->getOptions(); my $jobid = $printer->printFile( $filename, $title );
Net::CUPS is an object oriented interface to the Common Unix Printing System.
Net::CUPS::Destination is an abstraction of the concept of a destination in CUPS. Destinations will most likely be a printer, but it can be any type of target in which a file is sent for processing.
$dest->addOption( $name, $value );
Method to add another option name/value pair to the destination.
my $dest->cancelJob( $jobid );
Method to chancel a job sent to this destination.
my $description = $dest->getDescription();
Provides the description string associated with this printer.
my $error = $dest->getError();
Utility method for returning the last error that occurred.
my $name = $dest->getName();
Method to return the name of the destination.
my $job = $dest->getJob( $jobid )
Method to get a specific job as a hash of attributes.
my @jobs = $dest->getJobs( $whose, $scope );
This method will return an array of job identifiers. $whose is 0 for all users and 1 is just for the selected user. $scope is -1 for all jobs, 0 for active jobs and 1 for completed jobs.
Returns the location string for this destination.
my $value = $dest->getOptionValue( $name );
This utility method will return the value of the selected option.
my @options = $dest->getOptions();
This method will return an array of the options currently set on the destination.
my $jobid = $dest->printFile( $filename, $title );
I know this is the method that you have been looking for. This is what you will use to send a file to handled by the destination. You must provide the name of the file and a title for the job.
my $uri = $dest->getUri();
This function returns the device URI of a destination. For example, a network printer might appear as socket://192.168.1.1
my $state = $dest->getState();
This function returns the state of a destination. The value is an enumeration type with 3 meaning 'idle', 4 'processing' and 5 'stopped'.
