Php ipp

Quick thread to brag about something I found…

This, in combination with CUPS on the server, immensely streamlines the process of printing documents from PHP.

For those curious as to why, the website I work on is entirely internal, and at the height of the business season we need the printing to go as quickly as possible. We generate the receipts as PDF files but need to get the print time under a second, and the users don’t want to be clicking confirmation boxes every time they click on the print button.
