Using global resource identifiers

InfoPrint can identify the fonts required for a job, access AFP font files that are installed on or NFS-mounted to the pSeries, and download the appropriate fonts to an InfoPrint-managed printer device. However, some InfoPrint printers can use fonts that are resident in the printer, saving the time it takes to download these fonts. Because the font files on the pSeries do not share the same names as the printer-resident fonts, InfoPrint uses global resource identifiers (GRIDs) to map the pSeries-resident fonts to the printer-resident fonts. Use the information in this chapter to work with GRIDs.
