NAME cups-deviced - cups device daemon

SYNOPSIS cups-deviced request-id limit user-id options

DESCRIPTION cups-deviced polls the backends in /usr/lib/cups/backend for a list of available devices. It is run by cupsd(8) in response to a CUPS-Get- Devices request. The output format is an IPP response message. The request-id argument is the request ID from the original IPP request, typically 1. The Ilimit argument is the limit value from the original IPP request - 0 means no limit. The user-id argument is the requesting- user-name value from the original IPP request. Finally, the options argument is a space-delimited list of attributes ("name=value name=value ...") that were passed in with the request. Currently cups- deviced looks for the requested-attributes attribute and tailors the output accordingly.
