The  Scan Device  Printer  Attributes command  scans  one, generic,  or
printer devices  for attribute values.  This acts  as a simple query to
determine the value of attributes of printer devices.

A typical command would be:


A  spooled file  would be  displayed of  all printer devices  that have
the specified owner.
