Smith,

How about:

5.3 job-pages-per-set (integer(1:MAX))

The RECOMMENDED "job-pages-per-set" Job Template attribute specifies the number of input pages that constitute a set for finishing processes. It is used when the Client generates the copies in the Document content because the Printer does not support the "copies" attribute [RFC2911] for the given Document format. If the Client includes the "job-pages-per-set" Job Template attribute in a Job Creation request:

- The Client SHOULD NOT include the "copies" Job Template attribute, or if included MUST use the value 1; and
- The Printer MUST ignore the value of the "copies-default" Printer Description attribute.

The value of "job-pages-per-set" MUST be evenly divisible with the number of Input Pages since it is being used to demarcate the length of a single copy or Set. See the sections on the "multiple-document-handling" Job Template attribute [RFC2911] for more information on using this attribute with multiple Document Jobs.

For example, if a Client submits a 14 page PWG Raster Format [PWG5102.4] Document for printing that contains two copies of four duplex pages each, the Client might specify a "job-pages-per-set" Job Template attribute with a value of 7, a "sides" attribute with a value of 'two-sided-long-edge', and a "finishings" attribute with a value of 4 (staple) to have the Printer staple two Sets of four sheets. Figure 4 shows a graphical representation of this example.

If the Printer supports the "copies" Job Template attribute for a given document format, the Printer SHOULD NOT support the "job-pages-per-set" attribute for that same document format. If both are supported for a given document format, when "job-pages-per-set" is specified, "copies" MUST be 1 or omitted since the purpose of the attribute is to specify that the document data contains copies generated by the Client. Specifying "job-pages-per-set" implicitly overrides any "copies" / "copies-default" value to 1. The value of "job-pages-per-set" MUST be evenly divisible with the number of Input Pages since it is being used to demarcate the length of a single copy. See the sections on the "multiple-document-handling" Job Template attribute [RFC2911] for more information on using this attribute with multiple Document Jobs.
