Each named file defines one or more requests, including the expected response status, attributes, and values. Output is either a plain text, formatted text, CSV, or XML report on the standard output, with a non-zero exit status indicating that one or more tests have failed. The file format is described in \fIipptoolfile(5)\fR. .SH OPTIONS The following options are recognized by \fIipptool\fR: .TP 5 -4 Specifies that \fIipptool\fR must connect to the printer or server using IPv4. .TP 5 -6 Specifies that \fIipptool\fR must connect to the printer or server using IPv6. .TP 5 -C Specifies that requests should be sent using the HTTP/1.1 "Transfer-Encoding: chunked" header, which is required for conformance by all versions of IPP. The default is to use "Transfer-Encoding: chunked" for requests with attached files and "Content-Length:" for requests without attached files. .TP 5 -E Forces TLS encryption when connecting to the server using the HTTP "Upgrade" header. .TP 5 -I Specifies that \fIipptool\fR will continue past errors. .TP 5 -L Specifies that requests should be sent using the HTTP/1.0 "Content-Length:" header, which is required for conformance by all versions of IPP. The default is to use "Transfer-Encoding: chunked" for requests with attached files and "Content-Length:" for requests without attached files. .TP 5 -S Forces (dedicated) SSL encryption when connecting to the server. .TP 5 -T seconds Specifies a timeout for IPP requests in seconds. .TP 5 -V version Specifies the default IPP version to use: 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 2.1, or 2.2. If not specified, version 1.1 is used. .TP 5 -X Specifies that XML (Apple plist) output is desired instead of the plain text report. This option is incompatible with the \fI-i\fR (interval) and \fI-n\fR (repeat-count) options. .TP 5 -c Specifies that CSV (comma-separated values) output is desired instead of the plain text output. .TP 5 -d name=value Defines the named variable. .TP 5 -f filename Defines the default request filename for tests. .TP 5 -i seconds Specifies that the (last) file should be repeated at the specified interval. This option is incompatible with the \fI-X\fR (XML plist output) option. .TP 5 -l Specifies that plain text output is desired. .TP 5 -n repeat-count Specifies that the (last) file should be repeated the specified number of times. This option is incompatible with the \fI-X\fR (XML plist output) option. .TP 5 -t Specifies that CUPS test report output is desired instead of the plain text output. .TP 5 -v Specifies that all request and response attributes should be output in CUPS test mode (\fI-t\fR). This is the default for XML output. .SH COMPATIBILITY The \fIipptool\fR program is unique to CUPS. .SH EXAMPLES Get a list of completed jobs for "myprinter": .nf ipptool ipp://localhost/printers/myprinter get-completed-jobs.test .fi .LP Send email notifications to "email@example.com" when "myprinter" changes: .nf ipptool -d recipient=mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org \ ipp://localhost/printers/myprinter create-printer-subscription.test .fi .SH STANDARD FILES The following standard files are available: .nf color.jpg create-printer-subscription.test document-a4.pdf document-a4.ps document-letter.pdf document-letter.ps get-completed-jobs.test get-jobs.test get-printer-attributes.test gray.jpg ipp-1.1.test ipp-2.0.test ipp-2.1.test ipp-2.2.test onepage-a4.pdf onepage-a4.ps onepage-letter.pdf onepage-letter.ps print-job.test testfile.jpg testfile.pdf testfile.ps testfile.txt .fi .SH SEE ALSO \fIipptoolfile(5)\fR, .br http://localhost:631/help .SH COPYRIGHT Copyright 2007-2012 by Apple Inc. .\" .\" End of "$Id$". .\"
