I am trying to get my head around print drivers. PS and PCL seem to be the 2 main ones.
Now here is what I have encountered:
If I move a print job across the network, the release printer recognizes the settings. Which leads me to believe that all a driver needs is the PS file generated.
However the PS file is in essence a set of 2 files. One is the SHL and the other is the SPL. Given that all the driver reads of the print job is inside those 2 files is it possible to alter the print job properties from that spool file?
If not then how does the driver know the correct properties if the originating application is not even on the server (moving scenario). All the information regarding that print job must be inside those spool files right?
Can i use Ghost script to edit the PS and hence the job properties (like colour to Mono)
