In the following lines, I have a question as to what the -t and -g switches do I can't find any info. on these two anywhere.

start /wait rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /dl /n "math231chp" /q
start /wait rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /dl /n "math231chp-t" /q
start /wait rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /dl /n "math231chp-g" /q

I get the first line when adding a printer but not knowing what the -t or -g switches do I can't understand having the last 2 lines in the batch file.

Anyone have any thoughts?

 Thanks.

The -t and -g aren't switches; these lines delete the three local printers named "math231chp", "math231chp-t", and "math231chp-g".
For help with the "real" switches supported by the printui dll enter
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /?
