I have a CLP-300 attached to a linux print server. I would like other computers to be able to submit jobs as Postscript so that I can count page usage and avoid installing SpliX on all client computers. I made a modified PPD for the client computers to do just that, but I ran into a problem. It seems that when a job is sent to another server, cups embeds the user select options (duplex, etc) into the postscript file instead of the options being past on to the filter via the command line. It would be great if SpliX could parse such options out of the PS file and apply them to the job, allowing this to work properly. However, if an option is specified both in the PS file and on the command line, the command line option should be used.

Thanks,
Erik
