[REBOL] Re: Network printing
From: ric_shepard:fishgame:state:ak:us at: 19-Dec-2000 9:51
Using REBOL/Command in a Windows type (e.g., peer to peer, NT server, SAMBA)
network environment you can access network printer(s) by:
creating a printer connection
>> call "NET USE LPTx \\SERVER\PRINTER"
echo to the printer
>> echo %LPT1 print "This is a printer test" echo none
or use a port
>> ptr: open/lines %LPT1
>> insert tail ptr "This is line 1"
>> insert tail ptr "This is line two"
>> close ptr
or .... all the other 'port' variations ....
kill the printer connection
>> call "NET USE LPT1 /DELETE"
