Printer Enumeration Flags
The function enumerates the list of printers to which the user has made previous connections.
If the kPrinterFlagsName flag is not also passed, the function ignores the Name parameter, and enumerates the locally installed printers. If kPrinterFlagsName is also passed, the function enumerates the local printers on Name.
The function enumerates the printer identified by Name. This can be a server, a domain, or a print provider. If Name is nil, the function enumerates available print providers.
Remote (non Local) printers?
The function enumerates printers that have the shared attribute. Cannot be used in isolation; use an OR operation to combine with another constants.
This class has no sub classes.
