    Tell us, which Operating System and C++ compiler you are using?
    It will help others to suggest you an easy solution.

    This is platform specific, unfortunately, since C++ has no library for that.
    What are you developing for? Windows, Linux, Mac?

    FILE * fpPrint; // file handle for printing
    fpPrint = fopen( "PRN:" ); // open the printer port
    fprintf( fpPrint, "testing" ); // write to the printer
    fclose( fpPrint ); // close the printer port

    this code aint enough

    Can't you post an idea? Even if it's wrong it's still better us to write the whole code for you.
    Ubuntu Linux / Vista Home Premium (for games)
    SCiTE text editor, G++ compiler

    If this were to be correct, then you could just load the printer and (probably) write it to the "printer file". It would probably give you something.

    Actually I can hint only, I have not done anything like this before.
    But since everything is a file on Linux, you can try opening printer device as a file, and write to it.

    Please, I can't say if it will work or not. Let us have some expert's advice about this. First.
