I was just printing using cups, so there was this wild idea running
through my head ...
anyone had a look at IPP (Internet Printing Protocol)? AFAIK it is http
based, so it should be possible to make an ipp:// protocol in Rebol, which
would work cross platform with any IPP capable printing system ...
Just a thought - (at the moment I don't have the resources to make it a
project, but you are free to do it ;-)
