Check if  the option "print directly to printer"  is enabled

I would like to have a script that reads computer names from a file and check if the default printer has the option "Print directly to printer" enabled.
the script below will  enable the option "print directly to printer" . if t can be modified to send query to see if the option has been enabled that would be great.

Thank you
