NAME
       notifier - cups notification interface

SYNOPSIS
       notifier recipient [ user-data ]

DESCRIPTION
       The  CUPS notifier interface provides a standard method for adding sup-
       port for new event notification methods to CUPS.  Each notifier  deliv-
       ers  one  or  more  IPP events from the standard input to the specified
       recipient.

       Notifiers MUST read IPP messages from the standard input using the ipp-
       New()  and  ippReadFile()  functions  and exit on error.  Notifiers are
       encouraged to exit after a suitable period of inactivity, however  they
       may exit after reading the first message or stay running until an error
       is seen.  Notifiers inherit the environment and  can  use  the  logging
       mechanism documented in filter(7).
