[Samba] Custom smbprint script for testing

Hello there,

I've produced a modified version of the smbprint script that comes 
with the samba source.

The script is aimed to retry sending the print job if the windows 
machine is switched off at the time of printing (samba seems to just 
drop the print job after a period of time if the machine is off). This 
script will mail you to tell you the machine isn't turned on yet and if 
you go along and turn the machine on, when it boots up, the job 
should print.

The script also figures out if it's printing to an XP machine which 
needs a user/password to print (on my network) and supplies the 
appropriate data.

See the script code in the attachment for further info.

This script has been running for the last 3 months or so on my 
printserver without any problems and I thought I'd pass it on for 
anyone to test and/or use.
