Re: printing signs from command line

A sighted friend had a look at cat biglots.txt | lpr. The amount of lines was correct but not all the characters made it through. No consistency in what was stripped either. I tried a2ps -Eplain -v -B --borders=no biglots.txt because those parameters were in /etc/a2ps.cfg on the User Option: lp line. What came back was no "print" mailcap rule for Plain/text exists as an error.

One big difference between dos and Linux is when dos prints out an ascii
file, it prints out an ascii file.  Linux uses Unicode and maybe a little
too loosely for this particular printer's tastes.  That would explain
possibly why dos can print correctly and so far Linux cannot.  Maybe
there's a filter to copy unicode over to ascii but I don't know for sure.
