Method to Input a Folder Through a Specified Level of Nesting of Folders As Data to an Application

A method is described to permit a library user to submit a folder document and all of the documents that the folder contains through a specified level of nesting of folder documents to an application as data.

The new method provides a protocol for an application to submit a folder document and all of the documents that the folder contains through a specified level of nesting. This is done by adding a folder document option to the execute application command to indicate that the folder document and the documents that it contains through a certain level of nesting are to be printed.

The method also includes a protocol for an application to receive a folder document and all of the documents that the folder contains. This can be done by adding a folder document option to the execute application command to indicate that the folder document and all the documents that it contains are to be printed.
