HP LaserJet 4100 PDF printing natively

Would like to send PDF file from Linux directly to HP 4100. Do these printers have this capability?

I doubt it.

Modern departmental-level devices like the LaserJet 4250 (and whatever its replacement is) have built-in support for "native-PDF" printing, provided that the device has at least 128MB of memory installed.

For older devices like the LJ4200, it was possible to purchase an add-on DIMM to support PDF printing (again, provided that at least 128MB oif memory was installed).

But I suspect that the LJ4100 is too old for either of the above.

Few 'specification' documents now appear to be available; two that are don't mention PDF (but then they don't say much about other Page Description Languages (PDLs) like PCL5, PCL6, PostScript either:
