question about printing
Hey I was wondering if it was possible to send the contents of say an array to a printer. I've searched but it seems like all I've found is printing the page one pixel at a time, through coordinates, stuff like that. I was wondering if there is an easier way to do this, like send the data (just a text file) all at once to a printer.
Well questions such as
- Your OS
- Your compiler
- Your application type (console, GUI)
- Your printer
- Where it's plugged in
spring to mind.
A windows GUI using the standard windows print API solves a lot of the lower level issues.
ok the OS would be Linux Ubuntu specifically
the compiler g++
the application type console is fine
the printer it'd actually be a couple are networked.
I guess I was thinking the printers could be treated like files, cause its linux, I'm guessing I was wrong
