Hello,

I am using FOP from within a java application and writing a PCL file.  I
then pass that PCL file to the LPT port for printing.  I want to be able to
render it as Postscript, not PCL.

Any advice or insight you have into post script or direct printing would be
gratefully appreciated!

Tony

I thought that I had answered a question about direct printing PCL recently.
If you will tell me what platform you are using (Windows/Unix) and how you
are invoking FOP (application or command line). I will try to answer this.

Hello,
Can somebody tell me how to stream PCL output to a network printer without
writing to a file.

Thanks,
Hitesh
