Usage Guidelines

  • For BSD, InfoPrint appends the contents of this attribute to the contents of the actual destination attribute destination-command after the mapped options.
  • For CUPS, InfoPrint Manager passes the content of this attribute to the CUPS printing system.
  • When sent to an actual destination with a transform sequence, the information you provide with the destination-pass-through attribute is always passed to the DSS, and this information should not be used to pass transform-unique data (that is, data that the DSS does not understand) to the transform sequence.
  • 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.
