.I Xnsrprint
retrieves the files named in \fIfile1\fR through \fIfilen\fR and sends them 
to an Interpress printer.
If the file is a simple text file, \fImaha\fR will be invoked to format
the file into an Interpress master which is sent by \fIxnsprint\fR.
If the file is already an Interpress master, \fIxnsprint\fR is invoked
directly. An appropriate message is issued if the file is of a type other
than text or Interpress.
The arguments specified in \fIfile1\fR through \fIfilen\fR may be in one
of the following three forms, where host is a Clearinghouse name of the form 
\fIobject:domain:organization\fR (domain and organization are optional):
Credentials for accessing the remote service are determined either from the
environment variables XNSNAME and XNSPASSWD or, if not defined, by prompting 
the user.
The possible options are:
.B -f
causes the FilingSubset Protocol to be used instead of Filing.
.B -v
causes a message to be displayed as each file is sent to the printer.
.BI -P \ printer
causes the Interpress master to be delivered to the printer specified in
.IR printer .
If no printer is specified on the command line,
.I xnsprint
will determine the printer either from the environment variable PRINTER
or by querying a network Clearinghouse service.

Clearinghouse Protocol, \s8XSIS\s0 048404 (April 1984)
Filing Protocol, \s8XSIS\s0 108605 (May 1986)
It might be nice to build a minimal Interpress header for printing RES
(Viewpoint canvases) also.
There should be a way to pass other command line switches to \fImaha\fR or
\fIxnsprint\fR directly.
