LPRng is an alternative print spooler to CUPS. It was designed as a drop-in replacement for the old Berkeley Unix LPR system. It is mature and robust and it handles print filtering in a transparent and flexible manner.

Complete documentation exists on the LPRng website: [1] The man pages are also a useful source of information.
