[REBOL] Re: How to print a document

From: moeller_thorsten:gmx at: 12-Jun-2001 10:25

Hi Scott,fellow Rebolers, i ran into the same problem as Francois a while ago. OK, Rebol is a messaging language per definition, but that should not exclude printing in all environments. I was *NOT* able to get the %//prn stuff to work for me as i don't have an local attached printer. I only have network-printer at my service, but they didn't care about any printing command from my W2K box at all. So what can i do? Telling the users, sorry you can Mail your results anywhere, but printing? No, sorry. And the App has lost before coming to live. Poeple want to print out things today as in the past, necessary or not, regardless what the future will bring. Andrew made a neat little tool for printing, but what does it help with no local printer. OR is it a W2K problem? No, W98, same problem! In many companies there are lots of network-printers, which could be used. I wondered why this is not a problem for other programmers? Any comments out there?

Yes, it is a neat language.
