Hi ,
Can anybody explain the actual usage of the limit attribute =
which is optional in get-jobs request ? In what way will it be useful to =
the IPP client ?
the lines from IPP Model semantics reads as follows

"limit" (integer(1:MAX)):=20

The client OPTIONALLY supplies this attribute. The Printer object MUST =
support this=20

attribute. It is an integer value that indicates a limit to the number =
of Job objects returned. The=20

limit is a "stateless limit" in that if the value supplied by the client =
is =92N=92, then only the first =92N=92=20

jobs are returned in the Get-Jobs Response. There is no mechanism to =
allow for the next =92M=92 jobs=20

after the first =92N=92 jobs. If the client does not supply this =
attribute, the Printer object responds with=20

all applicable jobs.=20
