Printing Examples

P: n/a
Does anyone have any examples of how to send web page content to the
printer? I've looked at the PHP manual and I think I know how to do it
but I'd like be sure:

I have to open the printer first
Then I use the print write call?
Then I close the printer

Thanks...

If you want to print on the client you will have to use JavaScript or some
other client side program. You can't do it with PHP.

That looks really super - but I don't want to create .pdf files nor
send the output to a browser - I want to send the output to a printer
- I didn't see where this tool could do that or did I miss that?
