public final class PrinterInfo extends TextSyntax implements PrintServiceAttribute
Class PrinterInfo is a printing attribute class, a text attribute, that provides descriptive information about a printer. This could include things like: "This printer can be used for printing color transparencies for HR presentations", or "Out of courtesy for others, please print only small (1-5 page) jobs at this printer", or even \ "This printer is going away on July 1, 1997, please find a new printer".

IPP Compatibility: The string value gives the IPP name value. The locale gives the IPP natural language. The category name returned by getName() gives the IPP attribute name.
