Printing for Fun and Profit under AIX 5L

The introduction of AIX 5L demonstrates IBMĂs commitment to the open model of computing. The addition of the System V Release 4 print subsystem in this release of AIX is just one of the many ways that IBM demonstrates this commitment. Many new functions have been introduced in this latest release of AIX.

In AIX 5L, IBM includes both the traditional AIX print subsystem, which we will call the PowerPC print subsystem, as well as the System V print subsystem, which has been a printing standard for many years in the UNIX environment. For more complex printing environments, IBM also offers a print management product called Infoprint Manager. The system administrator must decide which print subsystem fits his or her environment the best. One of the aims of this book is to help you make that decision.

This redbook provides information on the two print subsystems available with AIX 5L Version 5.0. New in Version 5.0 is the initial implementation of the System V print subsystem, and this redbook will compare and contrast it with the legacy PowerPC print subsystem, as well as with the Infoprint Manager for AIX licensed program product.
