Check for Print Queue?

    Looking for suggestions/examples of a simple perl script to check the
    existence of a CUPS print queue.

    That's all it needs to do and no more with the queue. Yeah, I could
    search printers.conf, and may if I don't find anything a little more
    elegant and efficient.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    The first post was slightly inaccurate.

    Unfortunately I searched for print and queue.

    Thanks

    How? The only difference between your first and second posting is a
    trailing blank on one line. Don't fib on things that are easily
    checked.
