destination-pass-through

Lets you pass information to the DSS (destination driver). InfoPrint does not process the information, but passes it directly to the DSS. With the AIX DSS, the information is used to update the actual destinations's colon file.

For information about the use of destination-pass-through with other-transform-options, see %p.

destination-pass-through='_d=p'

With CUPS DSS:

'printer-driver-or-cups-printing-option=value'

For example, to send the data directly to the printer without any CUPS filtering enter:

destination-pass-through=raw

Default Value

No default value

Usage Guidelines

If you use the destination-pass-through attribute when submitting a job to a PSF-other actual destination, you can either direct the options to the PSF DSS or to the backend specified in the value of the destination-command attribute. When you specify -BE in the value for the destination-pass-through attribute, InfoPrint passes all values preceding -BE to the PSF DSS. InfoPrint passes any values following -BE to the backend program.
