Printer control

Post by Jeff Ashurs » Wed, 15 Nov 1995 04:00:00

The printed page can be formatted for, and printed on, A4 paper using
        pr -l70 <filename> | lpr

But how can I control the printer's own formfeed (typically fed after
the printed file) to also be 70 lines (A4) ?  I am using fanfold paper.

All suggestions will be received gratefully.

1. reading printer control lines under SVR4

        I am in the need of  some code that will allow me to read the
printer control lines under Microport SVR4 4.2 from a C program.  Could
anyone please pass on any information that they feel could be useful
in solving this problem?  E-mail is the best way to respond since I
do not have time to scan all the news groups.
Thanks in advance
