Electronic forms integration by modifying the Linux or Unix Printer Driver script file
When trying to load binary images through a parallel port, as with the simple DOS command:>
COPY <filename> LPT1 /B
You might have the best luck with the following UNIX command:
dd if=<sourcefile> of=/dev/lp0
'dd' is a handy utility to perform raw transfers without adding any extraneous characters. If dd is not available, try
cat sourcefile > /dev/lp0
