Default Value

The server identifies the document format. If the format cannot be determined, ascii

Usage Guidelines

  • If you or a default document you specify do not provide a value for this attribute with the pdpr command, the server tries to determine the file format. If it cannot determine the format, InfoPrint uses the default.
  • InfoPrint validates and schedules jobs using this attribute against the destination attribute document-formats-supported.
  • You cannot print ASCII documents and documents with other formats in the same job, except for CUPS DSS.
