Sorry, but I don't understand you here. Maybe you want to do
things, which are not possible, because of a wrong "thinking"
how things work in CUPS.

Regarding "LogLevel", please have a looked at the included "CUPS
Software Programmers Manual":

Please note: a backend is *not* a filter in CUPS terminology. These
are two different kind of programs.

Best regards,

In cupsd.conf, there is "LogLevel" directive ( debug, info, warning, error) which controls logging of messages to the cups log file. I need to know what loglevel is set in cupsd.conf, in my filter program.  I searched the CUPS API and did not find anything to get this loglevel info.
