 Getting the file to the printer

Printing from within an application is very easy, selecting the Print option from the menu.

From the command line, use the lp or lpr command.

lp file(s)

lpr file(s)

These commands can read from a pipe, so you can print the output of commands using

command | lp

There are many options available to tune the page layout, the number of copies, the printer that you want to print to if you have more than one available, paper size, one-side or double-sided printing if your printer supports this feature, margins and so on. Read the man pages for a complete overview.
