Customizable, extensible automatic printer filter
magicfilter is an extensible and customizable automatic printer filter. It selects an appropriate conversion technique for the input data by seeking for magic numbers, and then utilizing the appropriate conversion utility.
magicfilter is primarily intended for use as the `input filter’ by the lpd print spooler. The options accepted by magicfilter are exactly the ones passed to the input filter by lpd unless you build it on a LPRng system – in that case, magicfilter accepts no options.
