Description Michal Jaegermann 2001-01-02 18:22:23 UTC
A fixup function from /etc/rc.d/init.d/lpd in LPRng-3.6.22-5 does not
seem to be doing anything in particular (it does change a time stamp
on its input files).  I am a bit at loss what it was supposed to be
doing.  Something of that sort?

  perl -pi -e 's/\\\s*$/\n/,s/:\s*$/\n/ unless /^\s*#/' input_file

Not that not running that harms anything, apparently.

Michal

Comment 1 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-02-02 00:04:01 UTC
this was meant to translate old printtool generated printcaps of the form:

lpr|alias1\
:mx#0\
:sd=/var/spool/lpd

for BSD lpd to LPRng style, new printtool printcaps:

lpr|alias1
:mx#0
:sd=/var/spool/lpd
