Printing raw from a file
Hello everybody I'm having some printerr difficulties and was wondering if anyone has any insight into the matter.
I am in the process of writing a script to prints prerinting on different printers in a way that directly sends a raw file to the usb lp device file. Kind of like printing to a prn file in windows. Is there any way to accomplish this in linux (i.e. prepare the files before with a print driver and filter then to a raw send?
Mostly these days we use CUPS for printer control, which takes postscript level 3 output and converts it to the printer-specific codes required to format the output correctly.
