Printer functions and GD created image (Windows)

I have created an image using GD lib and now I would like to print it
using the Printer functions (on Windows XP). Does anyone know how to
write the image in memory to the printer (I assume I can use the Printer

(Is there a method that involves saving it as a file first?)

I do not know of anything about directly using a printer under PHP, but the
saving of files is handled easily by the the PHP-image functions.
imagejpeg($imag ehandle, 'filenamehere.j pg');

In the db the user can generate reports straight to a printer after a query has run. The user of this db just got a new computer with Windows XP and Access 2002. Now when the user runs the report the following error message is displayed:

I have created an application that copies images I select to two printer que's. The images are either AutoCAD plot files (.PLT) or scanned images (.TIF). My method works well for the PLT files on my two printers, however, I have problems when copying TIF images to one of them. I do a simply copy of the files like this: File.Copy (sSourceFilePath, sPlotterQuePath) When I try to do this on my 2nd printer (which is a HP LaserJet 5000N),

Hi, This apparently is a common problem and I've yet to read a solution that actually works for my specific situation. I have a Zebra RW220 printer that I connect to via Bluetooth connection mapped to a serial port. The application I'm writing runs on a Windows Mobile 5 device, so there's no built in printer support and I have to use a serial port.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
