lp would print a file to the named printer. How do I print or redirect the
console output to the printer as is the case in "ls -lha > prn"
And moreover a legacy program is printing to a device lpt1, had the port
existed & been connected/redirected to some printer....it would have
Problem here is that there is no connection between the print output of the
software and the lpd/lpr/cups/smb device. The software is NOT modified to
recognize the lpr/cups device and therefore is printing to a lpt1 port, as
all DOS legacy programs do. What I need to do is somehow capture the output
to the lpt1 device & redirect it to the printer setup on linux.
Is it possible to create a directory named lpt1 in /dev and make it behave
like a device (whatever behaving like a device is), so that the program
output written to it can be redirected to the the linux printer?
With best regards.
