Then you can open the printer port like a file using an fstream.  Open the text files with an fstream and write lines to the file like.

fstream File("C:\\SOMEFILE.TXT",ios_base::in);
fstream Printer("LPT1",ios_base::out);
const int LinesPerPage = 60;
int PageNum = 1;
int LinCnt = 0;

while (!File.eof())
{
   string Lin;

   getline(Lin,File);
   Printer << Lin << endl;
   ++LinCnt;
   if (LinCnt > LinesPerPage)
   {
       Printer << "page number: " << PageNum;
       Printer << '\f';
       ++PageNum;
       LinCnt = 0;
   }
}

The questions you are asking seem like they are for an accademic assignment--homework or school project etc.

For ethical reasons we cannot _give_ answers to accademic questions.  We can provide limited assistance, like you might get from a teacher or tudor.  i.e. we can help you work to a solution, but can't give it.
