The gspool_ptrfind() and gspool_ptrfindslot functions may be used to
find a printer from a given printer name rather than by the slot
number. gspool_ptrfind retrieves the printer description, gspool_ptrfindslot
just retrieves the slot number.
fd is a file descriptor previously returned by gspool_open
flags is zero, or "GSPOOL_FLAG_LOCALONLY" to ignore remote
printers/hosts, i.e. not local to the server, not the client.
name is the printer name to be searched for.
nid is the network-byte order IP address of the host of the machine
whose printer is to be searched for. This should be correct even if
"GSPOOL_FLAG_LOCALONLY" is specified.
slot is a pointer to a location in which the slot number of the printer
is placed if the search is successfull. It may be "NULL" if this is
not required (but this would be almost pointless for gspool_ptrfindslot).
ptrd is a pointer to a field to contain the printer name as defined in
The fields in struct apispptr are defined in the documentation for
If two or more printers on the same host have the same name, then it
is not defined which is returned by gspool_ptrfind and
gspool_ptrfindslot. In such cases, the whole printer list should be
read and the correct one selected.
The functions gspool_ptrfind() and gspool_ptrfindslot return 0 if
successful, otherwise one of the following codes:
