Just goes to show my ignorance of the read back functionality of the lp driver.
Do we have a program / proc entry which lists the device capabilities, I just
had a peek around the parport web pages but I could not find any reference to
the above command or its functionality. I supose that if this was to work for
most printers then RedHat (and other distributions) could automagically create
the printer files. I do remember someone from RedHat asking for this info...
Is there any other cute features that I do not know about?
