The Common UNIX Printing System (or CUPS(tm)) is a printing system and
general replacement for lpd and the like.  It supports the Internet
Printing Protocol (IPP), and has its own filtering driver model for
handling various document types.
This package provides the parts of CUPS which are needed for PPD-less
printing on IPP printers with common data formats.
