I need a small script for AIX that will look at the status of all the spooled printers and if any of them are down it will bring them back up. I imagine this can be done with lpstat and qadm but I am not a programmer so I am not sure how to write the script. If anyone could help me with this I would sure appreaciate it...

The answer is in the question!
lpstat |grep DOWN |grep -v grep |cut -1 |enq -U
that's will lookup wich queue is down and then bring it up
If you want to use qadm instead of "enq" have a look to both man pages
