Description

The PAPPL system functions provide access to the system object. System are created and deleted by the printer application while the life cycle of the pappl_system_t object is managed automatically for the printer application. The papplSystemCreate function creates a new system while the papplSystemDelete function deletes a system.

The papplSystemRun function starts a system while the papplSystemShutdown function stops a running system.

The papplSystemGet functions get the current values associated with a system while the papplSystemSet functions set the current values associated with a system.

Functions

papplSystemAddListeners

Add network or domain socket listeners.

bool  papplSystemAddListeners (
    pappl_system_t *system,
    const char *name
);

This function adds socket listeners.  The "name" parameter specifies the listener address.  Names starting with a slash (/) specify a UNIX domain socket path, otherwise the name is treated as a fully-qualified domain name or numeric IPv4 or IPv6 address.  If name is NULL, the "any" addresses are used ("0.0.0.0" and "[::]").

Listeners cannot be added after papplSystemRun is called.

papplSystemAddMIMEFilter

Add a file filter to the system.

void papplSystemAddMIMEFilter (
    pappl_system_t *system,
    const char *srctype,
    const char *dsttype,
    pappl_mime_filter_cb_t cb,
    void *data
);

This function adds a file filter to the system to be used for processing different kinds of document data in print jobs.  The "srctype" and "dsttype" arguments specify the source and destination MIME media types as constant strings.  A destination MIME media type of "image/pwg-raster" specifies a filter that uses the driver's raster interface.  Other destination types imply direct submission to the output device using the papplDeviceXxx functions.

5

Note: This function may not be called while the system is running.

papplSystemCreate

Create a system object.

pappl_system_t * papplSystemCreate (
    pappl_soptions_t options,
    const char *name,
    int port,
    const char *subtypes,
    const char *spooldir,
    const char *logfile,
    pappl_loglevel_t loglevel,
    const char *auth_service,
    bool tls_only
);

This function creates a new system object, which is responsible for managing all the printers, jobs, and resources used by the printer application.

The "options" argument specifies which options are enabled for the server:

  • PAPPL_SOPTIONS_NONE: No options.
  • PAPPL_SOPTIONS_DNSSD_HOST: When resolving DNS-SD service name collisions, use the DNS-SD hostname instead of a serial number or UUID.
  • PAPPL_SOPTIONS_WEB_LOG: Include the log file web page.
  • PAPPL_SOPTIONS_MULTI_QUEUE: Support multiple printers.
  • PAPPL_SOPTIONS_WEB_NETWORK: Include the network settings web page.
  • PAPPL_SOPTIONS_RAW_SOCKET: Accept jobs via raw sockets starting on port 9100.
  • PAPPL_SOPTIONS_WEB_REMOTE: Allow remote queue management.
  • PAPPL_SOPTIONS_WEB_SECURITY: Include the security settings web page.
  • PAPPL_SOPTIONS_WEB_INTERFACE: Include the standard printer and job monitoring web pages.
  • PAPPL_SOPTIONS_WEB_TLS: Include the TLS settings page.
  • PAPPL_SOPTIONS_USB_PRINTER: Accept jobs via USB for the default printer (embedded Linux only).

The "name" argument specifies a human-readable name for the system.

The "port" argument specifies the port number to bind to.  A value of 0 will cause an available port number to be assigned when the first listener is added with the papplSystemAddListeners function.

The "subtypes" argument specifies one or more comma-delimited DNS-SD service sub-types such as "_print" and "_universal".

The "spooldir" argument specifies the location of job files.  If NULL, a temporary directory is created.

The "logfile" argument specifies where to send log messages.  If NULL, the log messages are written to a temporary file.

The "loglevel" argument specifies the initial logging level.

The "auth_service" argument specifies a PAM authentication service name.  If NULL, no user authentication will be provided.

The "tls_only" argument controls whether the printer application will accept unencrypted connections.  In general, this argument should always be false (allow unencrypted connections) since not all clients support encrypted printing.

);

This function sets a custom MIME typing callback for the system.  The MIME typing callback extends the built-in MIME typing support for other media types that are supported by the application, typically vendor print formats.

The callback function receives a buffer containing the initial bytes of the document data, the length of the buffer, and the callback data.  It can then return NULL if the content is not recognized or a constant string containing the MIME media type, for example "application/vnd.hp-pcl" for HP PCL print data.

papplSystemSetMaxLogSize

Set the maximum log file size in bytes.

void papplSystemSetMaxLogSize (
    pappl_system_t *system,

    pappl_pr_create_cb_t create_cb,
    pappl_pr_driver_cb_t driver_cb,
    void *data
);

This function sets the lists of printer drivers, the optional auto-add callback function, the optional creation callback, and the required driver initialization callback function.

The auto-add callback ("autoadd_cb") finds a compatible driver name for the specified printer.  It is used when the client or user specifies the "auto" driver name, and for the "autoadd" sub-command for the papplMainloop API.

The creation callback ("create_cb") is called at the end of printer creation to make any common changes or additions to a new printer.  It is typically used to add extra web pages, add per-printer static resources, and/or initialize the contact and location information.

The driver initialization callback ("driver_cb") is called to initialize the pappl_pr_driver_data_t structure, which provides all of the printer capabilities and callbacks for printing.

papplSystemSetSaveCallback

Set the save callback.

void papplSystemSetSaveCallback (
    pappl_system_t *system,
    pappl_save_cb_t cb,
    void *data
);

This function sets a callback that is used to periodically save the current system state.  Typically the callback function ("cb") is papplSystemSaveState and the callback data ("data") is the name of the state file:

    papplSystemSetSaveCallback(system, (pappl_save_cb_t)papplSystemSaveState,
        (void *)filename);
5

Note: The save callback can only be set prior to calling

5

papplSystemRun.

papplSystemSetUUID

Set the system UUID.

void papplSystemSetUUID (
    pappl_system_t *system,
    const char *value
);

This function sets the system UUID value, overriding the default (generated) value.  It is typically used when restoring the state of a previous incarnation of the system.

5

Note: The UUID can only be set prior to calling papplSystemRun.

papplSystemSetVersions

Set the firmware names and versions.

void papplSystemSetVersions (
    pappl_system_t *system,
    int num_versions,
    pappl_version_t *versions
);

This function sets the names and versions of each firmware/software component of the printer application.

papplSystemShutdown

Shutdown the system.

void papplSystemShutdown (
    pappl_system_t *system
);

This function tells the system to perform an orderly shutdown of all printers and to terminate the main loop.
