At the IPP meeting this week, several people indicated that the Xerox
Scripts as written
cannot be used, since the scripts expect that several jobs can be queued
while one is
processing.

So we'd like to develop a separate set of scripts for the printers that can
only accept one job at a time.

Our first question is, do these printers keep job information around after
the job finishes?
I.e., will a Get-Jobs or Get-Job-Attributes return any jobs in the
'completed', 'aborted', or
'canceled' states?

If so, then we can write the scripts to test that. If they don't, then we
have to write the
scripts differently. Currently, we don't have a way to write a single
script that can conditionally
work with either kind of implementation.

So should we write the scripts that assume that the jobs are kept after the
jobs complete
or not?

Thanks,
