Printwatcher PDF Print E-mail

This script watches for activity at the installed printers and writes a logfile. It shows how much a user has printed on wich printer (works also with network printers).

But it has a proplem with counting the right amount of printed pages :-(

It uses the wmi-class from Tim Golden, which you can download from his webpages. Please put the wmi.py in the same directory where you run this script from.

 
import wmi
c = wmi.WMI ()
 
print_job_watcher = c.watch_for (
  notification_type="Creation",
  wmi_class="Win32_PrintJob",
  delay_secs=1
)
while 1:
  pj = print_job_watcher ()
  print "User %s has submitted %d pages to printer %s" % 
    (pj.Owner, pj.TotalPages, pj.Name)

My prefered Python IDE

My prefered Python editor is Pyscripter from MMExperts. It is not only an editor. Pyscripter is a full Python IDE including (remote) debugging, a class browser, and all other nice helpers which a full featured IDE needs.

Do you have a script for me ?

Do you have an interesting Python script which does some really cool thing on Windows ? Please post them to this site. It`s very simple - simply copy&paste it to this form. No login is requiered.

Hint: For syntax highlighting and correct Python intendation place your code between html tags <pre> and </pre>.

My prefered web framework

My prefered web framework for developing web applications is Django. Django calls itself The web framework for perfectionists with deadlines. It is a really fast, scalable and (thanks Python) the sexiest web framework of the world.
