Ok, I was asked this question and I didn't know the answer.  How do you print to a network printer using ostream?

This code works:
#include<fstream.h>
int main()
{
        ofstream printer ("prn");
        printer << "This line is on the printer\n";
        return 0;
}

works OK if the printer is attached to LPT1, but does not print on the
network printer
\\wchs\hp4000_wchs_g129

Thanks for your help

You should be able to specify the network path to the ofstream, like

    ofstream printer ("\\\\wchs\\hp4000_wchs_g129");

Note that each "\" is expressed as two "\"s in the string.  That should work fine.
