The Common Unix Printing System
CUPS is a printing system that uses the Internet Printing Protocol (IPP). It provides System V and BSD command-line interfaces, as well as a Web interface and a C programming interface to manage printers and print jobs. It supports printing to both local (parallel, serial, USB) and networked printers, and printers can be shared from one computer to another. Internally, CUPS uses PostScript Printer Description (PPD) files to describe printer capabilities and features, and a wide variety of generic and device-specific programs to convert and print many types of files.
