It goes like this:

Unix client --------> LPD on (e.g.) windows
(lpr file)            OCaml daemon gets the file
                      `--> once the file is received, it can be sent
                           to a command of your choice (currently
			   gsprint but is can be anything)

Did I make myself more clear?
