    How to print using C++

    Hi. For all those who know BASIC, you might remember there is an LPRINT statement that is used to print a line on paper.

    e.g. LPRINT "Hello World" would print "Hello World" on paper using the printer.

    Is there a similar statement/function which does this in C++?

    Code:
    #include <cstdio>
    
    int main(){
    FILE* fout = fopen("LPT1","w");
    if(fout){
    fprintf(fout,"Poor man's printout\f");
    fclose(fout);
    }
    
    return 0;
    }

    Note:LPT1 is the DOS device for the 1st printer port.I guess you could access other devices like this-?
