    I tried to search before but none or them match my criteria.
    I want the command to print the file record using printer(hardcopy)

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    #define MY_PRINTER_PORT "LPT1" //port for your printer
    
    int main (void){
    
    	char buff[] = "Hello World\n";//catchy text
    
    	FILE *f = fopen(MY_PRINTER_PORT,"w");//open printer as file
    
    	if(!f){
    		printf("Could not open printer for writing");
    		return 1;
    	}
    
    
    	fprintf(f,buff);//write text
    
    	fprintf(f,"%c",(char)12);//write linefeed command
    	
    	fclose(f);//close printer
    	
    	return 0;
    }

    I find that hard to believe, I myself have answered this question (exactly as you asked it) with source code for several methods at least twenty times since I first joined Cprogramming.

    -Prelude
    My best code is written with the delete key.
