       cups-deviced request-id limit user-id options

       cups-deviced  polls  the  backends in /usr/lib/cups/backend or /usr/libexec/cups/backend (OS X) for a
       list of available devices. It is run by cupsd(8) in response to a CUPS-Get-Devices request. The  out-put output
       put  format  is  an IPP response message. The request-id argument is the request ID from the original
       IPP request, typically 1. The limit argument is the limit value from the original  IPP  request  -  0
       means no limit. The user-id argument is the requesting-user-name value from the original IPP request.
       Finally, the options argument is a space-delimited list of attributes ("name=value  name=value  ...")
       that  were  passed  in  with  the  request. Currently cups-deviced looks for the requested-attributes
       attribute and tailors the output accordingly.
