Submitting text files with a shell script
Create a file that contains the pdpr command and all its attributes. Create a shell script and put it in a directory on the system where you have installed the pdpr command.
The file should look similar to this:
# Sample Shell # Script for InfoPrint Manager Email Text # Uses a script to submit: # sendtxtemail $1 $2 # $1 is required as the name of the file to send. # $2 is optional as the recipient of the email. # # This script takes an ASCII file as input and creates #PostScript output that is submitted with the pdpr command # as email. #! /usr/bin/ksh if [[ -a $1 && -n $1] ] then if [ $2 ] then WHOTO=$2 else WHOTO="firstname.lastname@example.org" fi # Make temporary PostScript file enscript -p /tmp/$$email.txt $1 /usr/lpp/pd/bin/pdpr -p email1-ld \ -r brief \ -x email-to-address=$WHOTO \ -x email@example.com \ -x "subject-text='Your requested Email file'" \ -x document-type=printable /tmp/$$email.txt \ -x document-type=email-body /email_script/body.txt \ -x document-type=email-signature /email_script/sig.txt # Delete temporary PostScript file rm /tmp/$$email.txt else echo " sendtxtfile: could not locate file [$1]" fi
On the command line, this shell script uses this syntax:
sendtxtfile outputfilename [destination]where outputfilename specifies the file that you are sending (email.txt) and destination is the e-mail address (johndoe) to which you are sending the file.
This script sends an e-mail to either the destination value that you specify as the second argument on the command line, or to 'johndoe' Internet ID, if you use the default. The script uses a logical destination (printer) named email-ld on your InfoPrint server. This file uses the enscript command to convert the text file to PostScript, stores that PostScript file in the /tmp directory on the submitting system, and then deletes that file after the pdpr command has submitted the PostScript file to the InfoPrint server.
The convention us.name.com indicates a typical Internet address for a business.
