Printjob Capture Service

This module is designed to listen for PJL or PostScript print jobs. Once a print job is detected it is saved to loot. The captured printjob can then be forwarded on to another printer (required for LPR printjobs). Resulting PCL/PS files can be read with GhostScript/GhostPCL. Note, this module does not yet support IPP connections.
