HELP LPR John Williams, Apr 1989 <ENTER> lpr [-<flags>] [<filenames>] <ENTER> lprmr [-<flags>] <ENTER> LPR provides a Ved interface to the Unix lpr command, for printing files. If you are unfamiliar with lpr, you should read MAN * LPR. <ENTER> LPR is exactly like the Unix lpr, 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> lpr -Ptpb <RETURN> You can also print marked portions of files, using <ENTER> LPRMR. For example, the command <ENTER> lprmr -Ptpb will send the marked portion of the current file to the printer "tpb". See also HELP * LP (an interface to the Unix lp print command). --- C.unix/help/lpr --- Copyright University of Sussex 1989. All rights reserved.
