I am not sure if this is the right forum for my question, may be there is more specific one, if it so please move to right forum.
At our company we use UNIX transparent printing. What this is a string embedded in the page (text,html,prn) which tells a printer how to print a page. For example, a string: E&l3A&l1O&l8D&l2E9(s16.66H&k0G&l63F tells printer to print page in legal landscape without user going into print settings and choosing desired format. If user wants to print this page using this string as a print guideline, he saves page to local drive and uses PrintFile software http://www.lerup.com/printfile/ which expects saved file and sends it to a printer making printer recognize the print string. Now, my boss is interested in bypassing PrintFile software so that when a user loads jsp/html page and selects File -> Print file is automatically sent to printer and printer prints in right format without, as I said using PrintFile program. Is this possible?
