How are you supposed to print from cygwin (the latest) on WinNT (4.0 Sp 6a)?
The FAQ points to some articles in the newsgroup about printing on a 
network printer, but doesn't mention
anything about printing on the printer attached to my PC.

I tried
   echo test > lpt
which does nothing---nothing shows up in the print queue or gets printed
   echo test > lpt1
tcsh hangs when I do this.

Any suggestions?  I have a Canon BJC-5100 printer, if that makes any 

Thanks for your help,
