If enabled, the printer test is run. A Centronics or ECP mode parallel port printer must be attached 

data=ascii|postscript Choose whether ascii text or postscript data is sent to the printer. A postscript printer must be attached to print postscript data.

Note -

64-bit tests are located in the sparcv9 subdirectory: /opt/SUNWvts/bin/sparcv9/testname. If a test is not present in this directory, then it may only be available as a 32-bit test. For more information refer to "32-Bit and 64-Bit Tests".
