SUMMARY - lp, filters and user name

Hello all,

Thanks to everyone who sent in hints to solve this problem, especially
G. Cameron
Peter Allen
(who both sent in source code mods for me)

Using lp under Solaris is a real pain, and the only way to extract the information is by changing the printer filter routines in /usr/lib/lp/bin to add the information to the job, and then extract the information in the home grown filter code later on.

(A copy of the code to do this - thanks G Cameron - is available if you want it)
