Assuming you are using Linux or a Mac, I wonder if it is somehow possible to
"save" a .ps file to a postscript device? I have never had to do any Linux
magic with CUPS, so maybe this isn't possible. Anybody else have any
Normally you can cat the .ps file to lpr or similar:
$ cat file.ps | lpr -P my_printer
$ lpr -P my_printer file.ps
I'm not sure if it works also for eps files.
On mac I'd print it using the system. Actually my first inspection
now shows that apparently you can use lpr also on mac:
HP_LaserJet_4100n_at_CERN_ISOLDE_offices ist bereit
(meaning the printer is ready and there are no entries)
But I don't know if all printers are listed in the lpq list, because
for me one is missing.
