Unix Printing

Discussion in 'Python' started by Greg Lindstrom, Sep 8, 2004.

  1. Hello,

    I am about to write a script that will allow the users on my HP-9000 box to
    list the contents of a directory and choose a file to print. I would then
    like to show them a menu of printers configured on the box and allow them to
    choose one (via the "old style" ASCII type menus). Before I go write the
    beast, do any of you know if anything like that exists? In particular, can
    I get a list of all of the printers configured on the HP-9000 running
    HP-UNIX?

    Thanks for your help,

    --greg
