HELP LP John Williams, Apr 1989 <ENTER> lp [-<flags>] [<filenames>] <ENTER> lpmr [-<flags>] <ENTER> LP provides a Ved interface to the Unix lp command, for printing files. If you are unfamiliar with lp, you should read MAN * LP. <ENTER> LP is exactly like the Unix lp, except that if no <filenames> are specified, the contents of the current Ved buffer are sent to the printer. So, for example, to print this file on a printer called "tpb", do: <ENTER> lp -d tpb <RETURN> You can also print marked portions of files, using <ENTER> LPMR. For example, the command <ENTER> lpmr -d tpb will send the marked portion of the current file to the printer "tpb". See also HELP * LPR (an interface to the Unix lpr print command). +-+ C.unix/help/lp +-+ Copyright University of Sussex 1989. All rights reserved.
