Sample Code
The Mac OS X printing system is based on CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System). Mac OS X printing supports PostScript and raster printers, and offers features such as job spooling via IPP (Internet Printing Protocol), and PDF and Quartz imaging. The printing system allows applications to present extensible user interfaces so that developers can extend Apple's interface rather than write code to override it.
