### END apsfilter: ### /etc/gs.upp/y2prn_lp.upp lp ###

I've tried cat'ting the file strait to /dev/lp0, but nothing happened. I'd
sure like to know why this one is so difficult, for I don't see why lpr
should be doing this conversion in the first place, especially on a .txt
file.

Printing to printer lp -Plp is 1) completely unnecessary, since lp is the
default, and 2) a synonym for "auto" which if you look at apsfilter's sources
will try to parse your code and create postscript out of it and send it
through ghostscript to print.

What you should do is print it through either printer raw (-Plp-raw) or
printer ascii (-Plp-ascii). With lp-raw there is no conversion, and with
lp-ascii it is assumed to be ascii text.

Anders
