Using mount consistently to print
Tue Oct 28 03:46:00 GMT 1997

As long as you can do things like mount /dev/cdrom under cygwin's
bash shell, how about a mount /dev/lp option?

That way, Unix lpr can be used to print, and even do graphics printing
using the gswin.exe postscript interpreter.

You might check this out on your system, but I think cygwin bash permits
a call of the form:

	cat textfile > prn

Was this a loophole that you overlooked in the quest to make bash
impractical for Windows?

For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
