what kind of document are you trying to print?
on what system? 32 or 64 bits?

can you stop the spool service and clean up it's temp directory, (in windows system32, spool something) and start it up again in case something is stuck there?

It doesn't sound as though this is perl related.   You will likely get better support if this question was moved, or you ask a new question, in a more relavant category.
