printing to a file

I am running HP ? UX 11.0. Is there a way to configure a printer to output the print job to a file.

Thanks

If you go to /usr/lib/lp/model directory, there will be script by name of the printer destination. You can edit the script and redirect the input to file instead of printer device..... hope this works

Try this:

lpshut
lpadmin -p -v -mdumb
accept
enable
lpsched

where is a name you want associated with this printer, is the full path to the file that you want to print to.

Try printing something...it should show up in the file.
