I need to send a file to a laser printer that will respond to PCL codes. This report was originall intended to print on 14 x11" paper (Old Mainframe format) and needs to be printed on a laser - I can do it setting specific PCL codes on the printer (landscape, font, vertical spacing, etc.) and using LPR in a shell script, but it would seem that the Java.Print API has the soluiton buried in it. Any help deciphering the API to find what I might need to do to have success with this project?
