In order to send data to a printer, we have to use "lpall" command. The "lpall" command is a unique command of the MDAS, which provides to print PS/PDF/TEXT files on single or both side of a paper.

The format of the "lpall" command

Format
    $ lpall -d [printer_name] {-L,-K} [file_name]
Option
    -d: specify printer
    -L: double sided printing, binding long edge
    -K: double sided printing, binding short edge

Example of the "lpall" command

$ lpall -d nwp-m1 test.ps (single sided printing of test.ps on nwp-m1)
$ lpall -d nwp-m1 -L test.pdf (double-sided printing of test.pdf on nwp-m1)
