    putchar(), puts(), printf() all work.
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.

    Which OS ?
    Which compiler ?
    What kind of program (DOS / Console / windows-GUI ) ?

    What have you tried so far, like for example you can print to the screen, but now you want to add printer output as well?

    Or are you stuck at "hello world" ?

    Right click on the console window and select all. Press enter to copy everything onto the clipboard. Use your favorite word processor to paste and print.
    It is too clear and so it is hard to see.
    A dunce once searched for fire with a lighted lantern.
    Had he known what fire was,
    He could have cooked his rice much sooner.

    Mmm, old enough that this might work

    Code:
    FILE *fp = fopen ( "prn:", "w" );
    if ( fp != NULL ) {
      fprintf( fp, "Hello world\n\f" );
      fclose( fp );
    } else {
      perror( "Couldn't print\n" );
    }
    Also try the following filenames, if that doesn't work
    "lpt:"
    "prn"
    "lpt"

    After each test, check to see whether it created a file with that name in the current directory (if it does, then it's the wrong filename for the printer).
