printer (a redirected port using the Redmon tool). The PHP modifies the
Postscript data before forwarding it to the real printer.
In this case the real printer is an HP LaserJet 5100 with a JetDirect
wireless server. My machine runs Windows XP. The printer, as well as
being accessible through the usual print methods within applications, is
available through its server at 192.168.1.4.
The problem is I just can't work out how I am supposed to send my
Postscript data to the printer from within the PHP script! What commands
do I use? I can't pipe data to a process like lpr, so what do I do? I
tried printer_open() and printer_write, but that just makes the printer
print the Postscript file as raw text rather than processing and
interpreting the Postscript code.
Any ideas, please?
