Hi Rick,
 
GREAT news that the tool does so much of the work for us!
 
Notes with attachments usually die at the PWG reflector,
so I'm replying to the WIMS list.
 
For exchange of files by FTP (the right approach), we should put
well-named files (w/ trailing 8-digit dates in the base name of their
ZIP files) in _short_ named directory paths.  
 
Email readers like Outlook frequently break long URLs.  Command 
line FTP tools make long URLs painful.  And uppercase should NOT 
be used in PWG FTP site directory paths.
 
So, I've just created the two directories:
 
HYPERLINK
"ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/cim/mofinput"ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/
cim/mofinput
HYPERLINK
"ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/cim/mofoutput"ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims
/cim/mofoutput
 
Please use simple filenames like 'rick-20070119.zip', since
the directory is self-identifying.  Please ZIP everything you
post, so we don't post the individual MOF files when there
will soon be so many under CIM_Printer (device).
 
OK, everyone?
 
Cheers,
- Ira

I think you'll be delighted with the results.  Long, ugly description lines?
No problem.  Attributes out of order?  No problem.  Well, except for the
ones it doesn't know about that are brand new.  

I hope this saves you some work programming.  

If you can't run mofpretty out there, I'll do it here.  Let's make a temp
directory on the ftp site to exchange files instead of emailing them all the
time.  Something like

  MofBeautySalon 
  MofBeautySalon/UglyIn 
  MofBeautySalon/PrettyOut
