NAME

spd - spool despooler  

SYNOPSIS

spd printer name printer-number  

DESCRIPTION

spd is the spool despooler process for the GNUspool spooler and document management system.

It is only ever intended to be invoked by the scheduler process spshed(8), and the effect of a user invoking this process is not defined.

The arguments are the printer name and the slot number in shared memory which refers to it.

DIAGNOSTICS

spd is usually invoked indirectly, via spshed(8) from system startup procedures or other programs such as gspl-start(1).

Thereafter it runs as a ``daemon process'' and diagnostics are not written to any terminal but to the file spshed_reps.

In the event of any problems this file should be examined.
