    well if it's on your home computer you might just try this out first

    if( prnter_fp = fopen("PRN", "wt") != NULL)
    printf("error writing to printer");

    then use the prnter_fp in the fprintf() function along with the format specifiers & args.
    this worked on my home set up win98 bubble prn.
