BSD lpd driving local printers

BSD lpd driving local printers

Post by Scott Ho » Sat, 24 Aug 1991 05:56:54

for reasons other than the fact that I hate IBMs print spooler under AIX,
I am having to use BSD lpd on and RS6000. I have a locally attached
4019 (alas, without the PostScript card) connected to the parallel port.
Any ideas where a suitable output filter (as in of= ) can be had to
drive a parallel printer in this manner.

This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
