IPP and CUPS support for Python
This software is a Python library which can prepare IPP requests with
the help of a somewhat high level API. These requests can then be sent
to an IPP printer or print server (e.g. CUPS).
This library can also parse IPP answers received, and create high level
Python objects from them.
Both of these actions can be done through an IPPRequest class and its
Finally, a CUPS class can be leveraged to easily deal with CUPS print
All of this library being written in the Python language, there is no
need to link the code with the CUPS' API, which makes it independant of
the CUPS version being installed.
Nevertheless some features require an appropriate CUPS version which
supports the functionality (e.g. IPP subscriptions require CUPS 1.2.x).
