Direct Printing of Buffered PDF Content

Threaded View
I have created formatted-PDF in Buffer. This PDF document have many
images, lines, texts with underline-bold-italic.
I put this buffer PDF contents to a variable. When I try to send the
variable to printer using Printer Extension's
funtions i.e. printer_open() & printer_write(), contents go for
printing queue but not printing. But when I put
simple text to the Printer_writer() function, it printed successfully.

How can I send 'buffered PDF contents' to the printer. Please help me!

You can't: printers can only understand plain text and their own printing
language (whatever it is: PCL, postscript...). You probably have the same
chance of finding a printer that can render PDF as finding one that plays
MP3 files.
