automatic printer filter

Magicfilter is a customizable, extensible automatic printer filter.

It translates the files that you send to a printer to a "language" that your printer can "understand". To accomplish this goal, it determines the type of the file that is to be printed and uses its "knowledge" to convert the file to something that is printable.

This is done by use of magicfilter's own magic database (a la file(1)) to decide how to print out a given print job.
