Project Description

I need a windows shell command that would silently print on a local installed printer

The command should work like this
c:\[url removed, login to view] -file "c:\[url removed, login to view]" -quality "high" -pages "1-5" -copies "1"

and should trigger printing on a locally installed printer with parameters I set

The parameters I need to set are default printing paramteres that include:

- pages: [1-n]
- collation
- copies
- pages per page (1,2,4,6)
- quality (best, normal, draft)
- color (color / grayscale)
- paper format (a4, a5, ...)
- margins

The print should output if the print has been successful and how many pages it printed sucessfully


and I need another simple shell command that will query printer status (called like this [url removed, login to view]) and get from it as many as it can:
- idle
- printing
- paper jam
- out of ink
etc
