This topic already emerged some time ago but spawned no discussion,
seems strange to me since it looks like the cumulative power of all
printers our there may well be worth the coding.

A fellow student of mine, now out of sight, has actually done
calculations by
sending through the network postscript files containing his algorithm.So
may be a possibility for a client based on the PC herding a bunch of

The only problem I can see is that the printer seems to process each
job sequentially, which means that the printer would indeed be barred
processing the next job in the queue until it is done with RC5...

Is there some kind of queue management allowing for the jobs being
as low priority and dropped in the eventuality of another one coming up
the queue ?

Can anybody point to ressources where this kind of questions may be
answered ?
