Title : Internet Printing Protocol/1.0: Implementer's Guide
Author(s) : T. Hastings, C. Manros
Filename : draft-ietf-ipp-implementers-guide-01.txt
Pages : 58
Date : 26-Feb-99
This document is one of a set of documents, which together describe all
aspects of a new Internet Printing Protocol (IPP). IPP is an
application level protocol that can be used for distributed printing
using Internet tools and technologies. This document contains
information that supplements the IPP Model and Semantics [IPP-MOD] and
the IPP Transport and Encoding [IPP-PRO] documents. It is intended to
help implementers understand IPP/1.0 and some of the considerations that
may assist them in the design of their client and/or IPP object
implementations. For example, a typical order of processing requests is
given, including error checking. Motivation for some of the
specification decisions is also included.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
