The scripts that I run will print to a serial printer just fine by piping a cat straight to /dev/ttya25 - the issue that I have is that we also want to send that file to a PCL printer.
Right now I can print it using "cat dtruniri-1000.sh | /usr/lib/hpnp/hpnpf -r -x hocopier -n" and this works well except it offers no compression to the file. The serial line printer seems to compress the file to fit on the page whereas the laser printer can only print 2/3 of the document and the rest is lost (doesn't even print on another page). Is there any way to tell hpnpf to compress it to fit on the page?
Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated.
