What is unix-lpr.sh? Is it part of ghostscript?

I'm using something like this:

/etc/printcap entry:


lps|lp-postscript|hp ljet III mit filter fuer PostScript:\
	:lp=/dev/lpt0:\
	:sd=/var/spool/lps:\
	:sh:\
	:of=/usr/local/bin/gsljps:\
	:lf=/var/log/lpd-errs:\
	:mx#0:
#!/bin/sh
/usr/local/bin/gs -q -dSAFER -sDEVICE=laserjet -r300 -dNOPAUSE -sOutputFile=- -


Instead of laserjet you can use whatever is appropriate for your printer.

Type gs -help to get the supported devices list.
