Well I have created 2 files for dmmy project work. I want to print the records which are present in the files as requested by the user.  What command will help me print the record from the file to the printer?
It would be of great help if the help is from C point of view

The above is a simple method for copying a file to a printer.

But a better answer can be provided if you give us more details of your requirements.

What OS?
What type of printer? (Printer connected to printer port or network printer)
