Preview CUPS job files on screen
My CUPS is set as to preserve job files. Now I would need something I printed a few days ago, but I do not know which job was it. Is there a program to preview CUPS job files on the screen? The files are in /var/spool/cups, at least on my OpenSUSE.

I am not aware of any particular program. You can use the file command to see the actual file format. Sad to say that I do not know the answer and have never looked at my job files. At the moment I am not near a linux computer so I can actually examine a file.

They could be PS, PDF, PCL or some other language depending on the make / model of printer. Viewing PS and PDF files are easy. Anything else might pose a problem.
