Endless frustration - stop it now. Get rid of the limited standard Unix spooler. Integrate CSS into your applications! It's the ultimate pain reliever, proven by thousands of users.

The CSS package consists of a collection of programs and utilities providing sophisticated control of all print activity on UNIX systems. Functionality and operation of CSS are specially designed to cover the needs of commercial applications. The user interface is an easy to operate dialog program allowing the administration of multiple printers, forms and report queues.

The add-on product WinCss is available for state-of-the art Client/Server environments. WinCss enables the end-user to control all aspects of CSS printer and report administration of the spooler located on a server system.


The CSS spooler is available for


SCO Unix


Windows NT


DEC Unix


Others upon request
