All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Cloneable, Attribute, PrintServiceAttribute

public final class PagesPerMinute
extends IntegerSyntax
implements PrintServiceAttribute

Class PagesPerMinute is an integer valued printing attribute that indicates the nominal number of pages per minute to the nearest whole number which may be generated by this printer (e.g., simplex, black-and-white). This attribute is informative, not a service guarantee. Generally, it is the value used in the marketing literature to describe the device. A value of 0 indicates a device that takes more than two minutes to process a page.

IPP Compatibility: The integer value gives the IPP integer value. The category name returned by getName() gives the IPP attribute name.
