This software is part of the GNU Project.

GNUspool is a spooling system which can support any type of printer and printer interface and also provides a variety of easy-to-use interfaces including graphical real-time-updated interfaces allowing full control over the function of the spooler.

Jobs and printers on other hosts running GNUspool are automatically shared across the network and can be manually or automatically routed to other available printers.

There are abundant facilities for support of form types and programmatic handling of printer features.

There are also a set of security features to control user access as required.
