    If you know C++ then it shouldn't be that hard.

    1. Open the port the printer is connected to w/fstream i.e. ostream file("LPT1");

    2. output whatever u want

    3. Don't forget to close the port

    I forgot to tell you:

    search the board for how to eject the last page from the printer. I can't remember right now. I know that Stoned Coder said it once. It is an escape key of some sort.
