lp/lpr for cygwin?

My lpr script is slightly different:

cat $1 > lpt1

Also, since I don't have a local printer connected to lpt1, 
I had to setup a network printer:

    net use lpt1: \\printserver\printersharename

for example:

    net use lpt1: \\sol\HPLJet5SiPS

Also, I use enscript to be able to pretty print source files.

Hope this helps,
