How to define in the printer driver spool settings: Print Directly to printer.

Post by Cras » Wed, 09 Aug 2000 04:00:00

I am developing a generic driver with some escape sequencies, from the
Generic Text driver from Microsoft, avaliable in the DDK.

I would like to know if is possible to put there also the Spool option to
"print directly to printer"., and how to do it

P.S.My news server is not working very well, so i am afraid that i cant read
the repplies to this post. If possible please reply to:

Thanks in advance.

1. Printer Pool - Print to multiple printers usings 1 print driver?

I am trying to figure out how to create (or if one already exists) a
printer pool. Only, this printer pool is NOT a queue. It is a print
job submitted once, that automatically prints out to many different
printers that I want to setup.

So, assume you have clicked "print" from your application, then assume
that you have chosen this pool of printers. If you have 5 printers in
the pool, then you have 5 copies printed out, 1 copy on each printer.

I would LOVE to have a setup where it is a local pool setup, but the
printers are on indiviual machines. The printers I intend on using are
not printers, they are software imagers that will export the intended
print to a file format. Each of the printers in the pool will handle 1
of 5 formats.

Anyone have any ideas of how to do this or if something already
