Thanks for the reply. I am fairly inexperienced with CUPS and there
seems to be a bit of a dearth of info out there, what exactly do I need
to do?? Can shell script OK, can you give me some tips on how to make
this happen.

My needs are pretty simple, just need to grab the raw (pcl) data that is
being sent via lp and palm it out via GhostPCL.
