Description James Peach 2003-11-09 19:23:54 UTC
I just upgraded to samba3 and found that printing stopped working because
the %U substitution was not being made on my print command. I presume that
this is caused by using MS_RPC instead of NetBIOS for printing(?).

At any rate, printing failed because the sambalp command wasn't getting 
enough command line arguments. However, the last two arguments are not
really necessary, so it would be more robust to allow them to be empty.

Patch to make argv parsing less strict.

This patch defaults the user and machine arguments to the
sambalp script and makes them optional.
