(If this is not the proper place for asking this, then what is?)
I have written a print filter which understands PS, HPGL, Gerber, ASCII,
and PDF file formats. This filter reads from stdin and writes to stdout.
How do I set up a printer entry in /etc/printcap? I need the output to
go to a remote printer over network. The data coming out from the filter
should not be changed in any way (it's all binary).
I had things working just fine when I had the filter piping it's output
to lpr again, but then I changed it to use stdout and can't make it work.
Any help appreciated.
