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 ;-) Ingo
